Allie Esiri, described in a Tatler profile as ‘a poetry powerhouse’, is the curator of the bestselling poetry anthologies that include A Poem for Every Day of the Year, A Poem for Every Night of the Year and Shakespeare for Every Day of the Year. A new anthology will be published in September 2021: A Poet for Every Day of the Year. Aimed at all ages, A Poem for Every Day of the Year (Macmillan, 2017) and A Poem for Every Night of the Year (Macmillan, 2016) were best books of the year in The Times, The New Statesman and The Observer. Amongst many recommendations, A Poem for Every Day of the Year was chosen as the castaway book on BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs and A Poem for Every Night of the Year won the IBW 2017 book award. A Poem for Every Day of the Year audiobook is read by Helena Bonham Carter and Simon Russell Beale. Available as a boxset of CDs or as a digital download, it has topped the Audible charts. Shakespeare for Every Day of the Year was published by Macmillan in the UK in 2019 and by Penguin in the US in 2020. The anthology is available in hardback, e book, and an audiobook with readings by a cast that includes Simon Russell Beale, Helen McCrory, Damian Lewis, Jade Anouka, Hattie Morahan and Paapa Essiedu. Seasonal paperbacks:, A Poem for Every Autumn Day, A Poem for Every Winter Day, A Poem for Every Spring Day and A Poem for Every Summer Day are now available in the UK, with poems selected from A Poem for Every Day of the Year and A Poem for Every Night of the Year. Credited with bringing poetry in to the digital age, Allie's bestselling interactive poetry app, The Love Book, recommended by Apple as an All Time Favourite App, features poems read by actors including Helena Bonham Carter, Tom Hiddleston, Emma Watson and Damian Lewis. A host of actors have joined Allie at the National theatre and at major festivals and on film to read poetry from the anthologies. Many are available on her website and YouTube channel. "Allie’s books take you by the hand with poems to restore you and make your toes tingle, that will take you away for a little while and home again, with your spirits a little higher than before."
