Unusual Love Poems with Laura Scott and Charlotte Eichler

To celebrate the launch of Laura’s and Charlotte’s new poetry collections (The Fourth Sister and Swimming Between Islands respectively), The Book Hive are having an evening of readings and discussion on the theme of ‘unusual love poetry’.

Ambivalence around marriage and family… ‘Love’ poems about grandparents and other relatives… After reading each other’s work, Laura and Charlotte realised that they had both written ‘weird’ love poems — in terms of style, subject matter or even addressee. Join us at the Norwich shop on the evening of the 4th of May (“May the Fourth be with you…”) when we prove ‘love poetry’ isn’t all cupids arrows, beating hearts and adoring eyes.

Both Laura and Charlotte will perform a selection of their poetry, discuss the themes of their pieces, and talk together about their writing process — on what promises to be an inspiring evening of award-winning, world-class writing.

Get ready for love like you’ve never read it before…

Charlotte Eichler is a poet based in West Yorkshire. Her pamphlet, Their Lunar Language, was published by Valley Press in 2018 and a selection of her work was featured in Carcanet’s New Poetries VIII anthology in 2021. Swimming Between Islands, her first full collection, was published by Carcanet in 2023. www.charlotteeichler.com

Laura Scott was born in London and now lives in Norwich. Her pamphlet, What I Saw, won the Michael Marks Prize in 2014, and in 2015 she won the Geoffrey Dearmer Prize. Her work was featured in New Poetries VII in 2018. So Many Rooms, her first collection, was The Guardian‘s Poetry Book of the Month when it came out in August 2019 and in 2020 it won the Seamus Heaney First Collection Prize and the East Anglian Book Award for Poetry.
