An Anthology for Angye

Danger Poésie is inviting orders for a fundraising anthology entitled Angye Gaona ou la liberté à tire-d'ailes (Angye Gaona, or Liberty Takes Wing). Forty-three poets (including Angye herself), three artists and eight translators have contributed to the book.

All proceeds from the anthology will go directly to Angye, a Surrealist poet who has been fighting wholly fabricated charges in the Colombian courts for the past three years. As well as having to take care of her seven-year-old daughter, Angye needs money to pay her legal fees, and her circumstances mean that apart from the occasional odd job she is financially dependent on her friends. Book sales are therefore intended to provide Angye with some additional support.

To place your order, send your name, postal address, telephone number and email address, stating the number of copies you wish to buy, to:

Danger poésie
53 rue Yves Klein
(Placette Honoré Daver)
F-06480 La Colle s/Loup

The anthology is priced at €12.50 (€7.50 for contributors), and cheques should be made payable to "Danger poésie". Shipping within the EU is free, but if you are outside the EU, or if you would like to pay by bank transfer rather than cheque, email danger-poesie[AT} to place your order.

You can keep up to date with news about Angye's case through the campaign's Facebook group.
