Supporting local is what The Whippet does – when local “Lindenite” David Chislett asked us if he could show case his new book For You or someone Like You we definitely said yes.
The poems in For Your Or Someone Like You were all drawn from an 18 month period when Chislett was posting a poem a day on popular social media site, Facebook. None of the poems published on the site were re-worked or edited in anyway, merely published straight from Chislett’s imagination to Facebook. From nearly over four hundred poems, this collection of 90 was drawn. And the best part is one poem also celebrates Linden – The piece is called The Rose of Linden.
We are so proud to support local poets such as David – please do pop by the shop to grab a copy for only R10
