Vulpes Libris

A collective of bibliophiles talking about books. Book Fox (vulpes libris): small bibliovorous mammal of overactive imagination and uncommonly large bookshop expenses. Habitat: anywhere the rustle of pages can be heard.

Poetry Week on VL

Welcome to our 9th Annual Poetry Week!
It’s the week every spring where Vulpes Libris highlights the undervalued art of verse. This year we have a bit more of a global perspective and a nice variety of styles and topics.
Here is our line up, but be on the lookout, as there may also be some surprises as well.

Monday- Hilary rounds off her exploration of a particular Norfolk landscape with George MacBeth’s Poems From Oby.

Wednesday- Colin takes a loaf of bread,a flask of wine, a book of Persian poetry and listens to the singing in the wilderness.

Friday- Moira remembers with fondness the evening she very nearly caused an international incident with The Laird O’ Cockpen.
