Introducing our Doncaster Read for
September & October


This September & October our Doncaster Read, in association with Doncaster Waterstones, features poetry. As National Poetry Day falls on 28th September, it is the perfect time to turn our attention to verse in all its forms. National Poetry Day began in 1994 and the Forward Arts Foundation charity which runs it describes it as ‘an annual celebration that inspires people throughout the UK to enjoy, discover and share poem’. Their mission is ‘to celebrate excellence in poetry and increase its audience’, which we also hope to achieve by focusing on poetry for our Doncaster Read.

The theme of National Poetry Day this year is FREEDOM and if you would like to add to or browse an online library of Freedom poems visit their website before 28th September at  

So, whether you have a favourite poet or form of poetry or are a complete newcomer to the world of poetry, please feel free to choose from our Doncaster Read selection and
pick up a poetry book today…
