‘Poetry powerhouse’ and winner of 2017’s Independent Bookshop Week award, Allie Esiri strikes again with a collection of handpicked poems for every day of the year. A companion volume to the bestselling A Poem for Every Night of the Year, this new anthology is a collection of 366 poems each with a connection to the corresponding date.
A Poem For Every Day of the Year is a literary journey through the calendar year celebrating the seasons, diverse cultures and notable historical dates. Perfect for reading aloud and sharing with all the family, the new book is full with familiar favourites and exciting new discoveries. T.S. Eliot, John Betjeman, Lewis Carroll and William Shakespeare sit alongside Carol Ann Duffy, Kate Tempest and many more.
This November, Esiri will once again host a Platform event at the National Theatre, following the sell-out success of the 2016 event, which featured special guests Samuel West and Hattie Morahan for an audience of over 1000 people.
Described by Tatler as a ‘poetry powerhouse’, Allie Esiri, a former stage, film and TV actress, is an accomplished curator and host of live poetry events and has worked with special guest readers such as Damian Lewis, Helen McCrory and Sophie Turner.
Credited with bringing poetry in to the digital age, her bestselling apps iF Poems and The Love Book feature readings with actors including Helena Bonham Carter, Tom Hiddleston, Bill Nighy and Emma Watson and have been selected by Apple as Best Education App and Best New App. Esiri read Modern and Medieval languages at Cambridge University and now lives in London with her husband and three children.
