Poetry To Fill A Room

Poetry To Fill A Room, poems by Susannah Fullerton, image

At long last my new CD is ready! I’m very excited about it. Over the years I’ve read many poems at my lectures and on my tours and have often been asked if I’d ever recorded any of my readings. So finally I decided it was time to do so. I found a recording firm, chose some favourite poems, wrote a script to introduce them, and did the actual recording. The result is Poetry to Fill a Room. English novelist Arnold Bennett once said that “if there was one word that could clear a public place… quicker than any other, that word was poetry”. That is such a pity – poetry should fill a room with people, not empty it. I hope that my readings will persuade you to spend more time enjoying poetry.

The hardest part of making the CD was choosing the poems. I have so many favourites. I’ve tried to provide a nice variety – comic poems, war poems, sonnets and lyrics, well-known favourites and a few lesser known gems.

I had such fun making the CD – I do hope you enjoy it.

Order online now for $22 (postage included) or you can buy it direct at my talks.

You can now personalise your CD with an inscription and signature.
