The Groningen Poetry Stanza is proud to congratulate our member Judith Wilkinson with her new poetry collection In Desert, published by Shoestring Press. Please join us on the evening of Thursday the 4th of November to celebrate her creative milestone. Judith will read poetry from her new collection and of course it will be possible to buy a copy. Several other members of our poetry group will also read some of their work. A perfect opportunity to enjoy English poetry written in the Groningen area!
