We are very proud to announce that Anthea Watson, a beloved member of our congregation, is a published author. Her book launch took place in January 2018. She is the author of Sounds of the City, a collection of moving poems.

Here she is, performing one of her poems for us!

 

The blurb of her new book reads:

“Anthea Watson is an architect, artist and poet. This collection of poems reflects on living and dying, especially the death of her husband, Duncan, and her own living with cancer over the last year. It reveals her love of London and the Sea, and her own experience of listening as well as seeing:

I listen for the sounds of the city; / but I hear only sounds of the sea.

At times bleak, at times metaphysical, and at times both witty and intelligent, the reader may find that these poems offer a kind of spiritual affirmation.”

 

You can buy ‘Sounds of the City’ from Claremount Press for £10. Write to 14 Marina Court, Alfred Street, London E3 2BH or email joywotton@gmail.com
