Republic Book Launch

The School is happy to announce that Nerys Williams will launch her new book at Books Upstairs on Wednesday the 26th at 7 pm. For more information please visit this link

More about the book: 

Nerys Williams’ new collection questions what makes a Republic? Machinations of power? The speeches of politicians? The broad sweep of official histories? This sequence of 80 prose-poems, each constructed in 20 sentences, has arisen from the author’s need to tell a more intimate history, to commit an untold oral history to paper. Williams returns to the meaning of “republic” in its Latin origins which meant “wealth of the people”.
