The Empty Chair (a.k.a. Cory Doctorow is Away)

I wrote and performed an impromtu poem at the London Book Fair.

I was due to interview Cory Doctorow at the London Book Fair last month.  Unfortunately the volcanic ash meant he (along with many others) had to cancel.

To fill the gap I wrote and performed a short poem, ‘The Empty Chair’, about the necessity of PEN.
