Reading at the English Bookshop in Stockholm

by Cas Blomberg

On April 7th, 2016 the English Bookshop in Stockholm set out chairs, poured the wine and opened up the floor for four members of the Stockholm Writers Group to read their poetry and prose to guests. 

Rebecca Lynn Foreman writes a poem every day and she has a stack of journals to prove it. For this event, she presented some of her more recent poems ranging in themes from airplane neighbors to nature.

You might ask yourself if anything is better than yoga, and the answer is, yes, Sara Hendey's poems! Sara chose a selection of poems from her completed work, “Patanjali’s Eggs,” a hybrid collection of prose and poetry focusing on the traditions and practices of yoga.

Ron Pavellas writes poetry and prose, but for this event he chose a variety of poems written during the chilly month of November, 2014, which included a lovely selection of Haiku and even a Haiban celebrating cinnamon.
