Latest News @ the RAU Library

Latest …..from College poetry anthology!!

Just a quick update on the College poetry anthology, ‘Our Common Ground’.

It went to a second print run (effectively a new ‘commercial’ edition) and became available ‘in all good bookshops’ and Amazon.co.uk etc. on 12th Feb. priced at £9.99. So it is now more widely available to everyone!

The Head of Library Services and the Principal attended a launch event largely organised by the publisher, Silverdart, in London at The Country Land and Business Association (CLA) HQ in Belgrave Square.  This launch took place on 28th February.

You might have seen the poster advertising the book dotted around the College, and Farmers Weekly have an article about the anthology online at: http://www.fwi.co.uk/Articles/2011/03/14/125897/VIDEO-Finding-the-culture-in-agriculture.htm 

Also recently the poetry anthology was featured on ‘Country Matters’ on BBC Radio Gloucestershire and Somerset.  The broadcast features staff, students and poetry readings.

You can listen on iPlayer for two more days!! http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/console/p00f856y/Vernon_Harwood_and_Brian_Bailey_13_03_2011 (our section is between 0:45:38 and 0:56:51.

Farmers Weekly also has an A4 spread on ‘Our Common Ground’ in the 18th March edition, and the College Librarian has been asked to help judge poems entered into a poetry competition by Farmers Weekly readers.  The article is entitled ‘Finding the culture in agriculture’.
