St Oswald’s Church, Grasmere
£8.00 (£7.00 advance payment and booking)
A sensuous exploration of the physical world.
Ruth Padel is one of our most startlingly original poets and a remarkable reader. She will return to Grasmere to read from her new book The Mara Crossing, a collection of poems with prose interludes that weaves science, nature, myth and human history to explore the way the world is created and sustained by migration on all kinds of levels. Ruth’s last Grasmere reading sold out fast, so book early to avoid disappointment.
Judy Brown is an outstanding and original new voice, reading at the Wordsworth Trust for the first time. Many of her poems are edgy, unsettling narratives, filled with exact observation and sudden modulations of tone and register and featuring exangels, spontaneous combustion and other mysterious phenomena. Loudness was shortlisted for the Forward Prize for Best First Collection.
