Christopher Reid – The Late Sun
Christopher Reid’s new book of poetry The Late Sun sustains a delicate balance between memorialisation of the recently dead and a celebration of the vitality of the living. Early in this evocative collection is a set of poems about the poet’s mother, who died in great age after a life of exotic travel, and his own travels and his sense of both place and displacement. He explores London, where he lives and the Mediterranean, which he loves. We are delighted to have a poet of his stature with us who will talk about his work and read from his collection. A delicious dinner afterwards is optional.
Tickets: £12/37 (including dinner)
