About the event

To celebrate this year’s National Poetry Day, Poet in the City is proud to present an evening with Wendy Cope on the theme of Games People Play. Her most recent collection of work, Family Values, combines her characteristic humour and formal ingenuity with subtle reflections on love, childhood, and growing old. In with keeping London 2012, the theme of this year’s National Poetry day is ‘Games’. Wendy is most interested in the sort of games people play with each other, mind games, and games in relationships and in love. Spend a delightful evening in the company of one of the UK’s best loved poets, who is also a patron of Poet in the City. Tickets cost £9.50 and can be purchased in person from Waterstone’s bookshop in Piccadilly or by telephoning Waterstone’s on 020 7851 2419.
