About the event

P J Kavanagh and Josephine Dickinson

The great man of letters, P J Kavanagh, writes of his poems: "Beyond decoration, humble, in plain rhyme,/ As clear as I could, and as truthful." This is a rare chance to hear this distinguished poet and author of the classic memoir The Perfect Stranger.
Josephine Dickinson was 41 when she met and married a sheep farmer in his late eighties. Set in the wild, remote landscape of Cumbria, the poems in Silence Fell tell a unique love story through a modern shepherd's calendar.
