birthday boys

I’ve noted before now the delightful custom around here to produce books celebrating particular poets. Last night at the Blue Bus reading David Annwn (top) presented Alan Halsey and Gavin Selerie (above) with Salamanders & Mandrake, a publication roughly coinciding with their 60th birthdays. A cast of thousands (well, 29 – 30 counting the additional piece by Johan de Wit included in an attached envelope) contributed to the volume. And despite the near tragedy of a double booking at The Lamb, all was well.
