About this event

Nottingham’s premier poetry publisher hits 25… Established and run by John Lucas from Beeston, Shoestring has published over 400 books, mosty of poetry but including some fiction, some memoir and some books of essays. His authors have come from everywhere from Radford to Tasmania and all stops in between, with a number of books in translation.

Today some guest poets, on and off the Shoestring list, will read from the best of that 25 years, and we’ll also remember a few Shoestring poets who have gone to that big poetry reading in the sky over the last quarter century.

Free, refreshments provided
