The Thursday Post: Black Friday and an incredible offer by PBS

We’re great fans of the Poetry Book Society and its Bulletin, here at the SPL, so we were very interested when they contacted us to say that on Black Friday (November 24), the PBS was offering a 50 percent discount on gift memberships. What do you get for your money? Members get the best contemporary poetry books delivered straight to their door every quarter alongside the bulletin magazine. Pretty good value!

That’s not all. The Poetry Book Society has a new look Winter Bulletin featuring exclusive poems and unique commentary from major worldwide poets. To take advantage of this brilliant offer, simply enter the code BLACKFRIDAY at the checkout here.

For poetry lovers in London, please note: The Winter Bulletin will be launched from 7pm on the 8th December at the Poetry Society Café in London, and will feature performances by five internationally acclaimed poets: PBS Choice Sasha Dugdale, PBS Recommendations Paul Deaton, Tim Dooley, Ahren Warner and PBS Special Commendation Fleur Adcock. Tickets are available here.

Bear in mind if you’re looking for further Christmas savings, the SPL Shop will be holding a Discount Christmas Shopping Night on Thursday, 14 December, between 6pm and 9pm. There will be wine, soft drinks, mince pies and music to keep you entertained while you browse our shop for presents. Not only do we have a fantastic range of poetry books and pamphlets, we have exclusive content like our SPL mugs, cards and badge. You’ll also have the chance to enter our raffle to win lovely literary goodies, and there will be an extra bonus surprise on the night. 10 percent off everything except sale stock, and an extra 20 percent off for member of our Friends of the SPL scheme.

And even if you can’t make it along on 14 December, you can always buy titles from the SPL via our website. Unlike some internet book retailers whose name will go unmentioned, we pay our taxes! Merry Black Friday, everyone!
