Turning to Poetry in Times of Need

by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | March 22, 2020

Allie Esiri announced on Instagram that her poetry app, The Love Book, would be free indefinitely. She wrote,

“In case helpful, we have made The Love Book poetry app free, indefinitely. Many people turn to poetry in times of need and here there are many poems with over seventy read aloud by leading actors Tom Hiddleston, Helena Bonham Carter, Damian Lewis, Helen McCrory, Emma Watson, and Gina Bellman. You can read, listen, even record your own one and share it. Send a recording to your granny; help with homeschool. Plenty of poems about love to send to a friend, lover, mother.”

Download the interactive literary app from the Apple Store for iOS and Android devices.

Damian Lewis Attends Cheltenham Literature Festival – Oct 12, 2014

Damian and Helen Attend Cheltenham Literature Festival

by Damianista | Fan Fun with Damian Lewis | October 12, 2014

Damian loves and supports poetry and so do we! One poetry project he has actively supported is The Love Book, a brilliant collection of classic and contemporary love poems that vary from Shakespeare to E.E. Cummings to Maya Angelou coming together in a book as well as in an app. And it is our utmost pleasure to take you along to The Love Book event we were extremely lucky to attend at Cheltenham Literature Festival.

The reading took place in Times Forum, a huge 1400-seater. There was a giant screen so everyone could comfortably see the entire performance. The couple would stand on opposite sides of the stage and read.
