First Thursday with Marianne Burton and David Llewellyn

First Thursday opens its autumn season with guest authors: poet Marianne Burton with her beautifully intelligent collection Kierkegaard’s Cupboard; novelist David Llewellyn with A Simple Scale, his story of two gay composers: one American, the other Soviet, and the strange ways in which their solitary lives intertwine.

Visiting poets Chad Norman (from America) and Emily Blewitt (all the way from Bridgend) will read as special guests.

And after the readings we will have our famous open mic, as always! Bring a poem or a page of prose if you feel like taking part.

Doors open 7:30. Entry fee £3 (refundable against purchase of a book)
