What Is The FIRE Book Tour?
We want to welcome you to Sapphire Community Group’s first ever book tour, which will be taking place on four evenings through the first two weeks of October. This is where we welcome you literature lovers of all types – from poetry to short fiction to self-published and traditionally published works – to enjoy four evenings of music, spoken word poetry and talks from our many authors, talking about their books, poetry and their love for reading and writing. You will hear of their writing process and history, and a little bit more about the works they have published. Jasmine Cannon Ikurusi, our charity founder will speak about her self-published works, alongside Shaniqua Benjamin, the leader of spoken word poetry organisation Young People’s Insight and a few of her poets. We will also have a few updates, some names which will be updated on this page for you soon, so watch this space!
