The Verb's Poetry Book Club | 04-Aug-16

The Verb is BBC Radio 3's Friday night 'cabaret of the word', a celebration of writing, performance and language, presented by the poet Ian McMillan.

They are looking for audience members to take part in an extra special recording with Wendy Cope. Ian will be interviewing Wendy about her classic 1985 poetry collection Making Cocoa for Kingsley Amis and they're looking for poetry fans to be an active part of the recording and to put their questions to Wendy as part of the programme. This special edition of The Verb will be recorded on Thursday 22nd September at BBC Broadcasting House between 12 and 2pm.
 
If you are interested in taking part please email Jessica.treen@bbc.co.uk to reserve your place. There are a limited number of free copies of Making Cocoa for Kingsley Amis to send out so you can read along with Ian and get thinking about your questions for Wendy.
