National Poetry Day: Sophia Thakur at Gower Records

Thursday 3rd October 18:30 at Gower Records, Waterstones Gower Street, London, WC1E

Celebrate National Poetry Day at Gower Records with an intimate and powerful performance from acclaimed poet Sophia Thakur

Sophia’s debut poetry collection Somebody Give This Heart a Pen is filled with earnest poems from a young woman trying to make sense of a lonely and complicated world. Listen to her stunning performance and hear more about the writing process; how she cut herself off from the outside world in order to understand isolation, and visited young offenders to learn about new perspectives. Sophia wrote this collection to help people “grow through what they go through”, and her sincere narrative voice will resonate with all people, whatever their background and whatever their dreams.

Tickets are priced £10 / £8 students and Plus cardholders, or £15 including a discounted copy of Somebody Give This Heart a Pen. All tickets include a drink and booking fees. This event takes place in Gower Records on the lower-ground floor.
