Author Events

Saturday 16th October, 18:00
Crickhowell

In what may be a unique literary event, Christopher Meredith has published a novel and a collection of poems simultaneously in 2021. In conversation with Tom Bullough, Chris will discuss and read from both. The poems in Still (Seren 2021) use the title word as a fulcrum to balance paradoxical concerns: stillness and motion, memory and forgetting, sanity and madness, survival and extinction. His novel Please (Seren 2021) is a verbally dazzling tragicomedy about hidden passion and regret in which elderly language geek Vernon struggles to write the story of his long marriage. Tickets from £7.00...
