Ledbury Poetry Festival  HR8 1DH

Paul Henry and Don Paterson at the Ledbury Poetry Festival

Don Paterson and Paul Henry: Readings and conversation with Ursula Owen.  Paul Henry’s The Brittle Sea: New & Selected Poems was recently reprinted by Seren. Henry was Herefordshire’s first Poet in Residence and has presented arts programmes for BBC Radio 3 and Radio 4. He will read from his new book, Boy Running. Don Paterson’s Landing Light won both the Whitbread and the T. S. Eliot Awards and Rain confirmed him as one of our leading poets. A recent review in The Guardian describes his work as ‘Dynamic, interrogative and unsettling; crafted yet open-ended; fiercely smart, savage and stirring – from the get-go, Paterson’s poetry has been essential reading. This Selected Poems blazes with the best of his meteoric ascent.’ 11am–12noon | Burgage Hall | £9 box office 01531 636 232
