Penelope Shuttle Readings

Penelope Shuttle Readings

Penelope Shuttle’s new collection Will You Walk a Little Faster? explores cities (London, Bristol) on foot and via inward exploration, drawing on architecture, history and personal memory. It is her first new book-length collection since her Bloodaxe retrospective, Unsent: New & Selected Poems (2012).  She launched the book at the Newcastle Poetry Festival on 12 May 2017, her 70th birthday.

‘It is the gentle pace that captivates in her poems. And what a phenomenal poet she is (she has recently celebrated her 70th birthday). She has an unbossy, contemplative, unmistakable voice. She leads you quietly and helps you see things – London especially – afresh.’ – Kate Kellaway, Poetry Book of the Month, The Observer
