Caught by the River Book of the Month

posted in: News | 0

The English River is Caught By the River’s Book Of The Month for June.

Caught By The River emerged in 2007 as a website that served as a hub for writers, poets and artists, taking the arterial aspect of rivers as an inspiration. Past contributors have included Bill Drummond, Chris Yates, Laura Beatty, Frank Cottrell Boyce, Chris Watson, Charles Rangeley-Wilson, Tim Dee, Pete Fowler and Emma Warren.

In 2016, Caught By The River staged a special event at Bush Hall in London which featured spoken word pieces and music. The event also saw Virginia and daughter Florence in performance.

The Caught By The River site also features a extract from the book, in this case the poem The Singing Way.
