There’s an event you mustn’t miss at South Elmsall Library on Saturday 15th March, 11am-12.30pm
Our 2014 Read Regional events will open with a poetry morning. There will be a chance to read and discuss some of the best contemporary poetry together and this will be followed by a reading from her collection ‘Destroyed Dresses’ by Cara Brennan. Cara is a young poet from North Yorkshire and ‘Destroyed Dresses’ is her first pamphlet, 17 poems written while she was a student at Newcastle University. The poems take us on a journey from childhood to early twenties using a dress or item of clothing as a focal point and they are full of vivid detail and emotions the reader will recognise and connect with. ”Most of the things I write are autobiographical. It just seems a more natural way to write, and when I am writing about myself I know it is true.” writes Cara.
Come and meet this exciting young talent and enjoy a morning exploring poetry.
Read Regional, a programme connecting readers and authors in Yorkshire and the North East is run by New Writing North. You can pick up a free booklet with information about the featured authors and the events taking place from any library and books by all the authors are on display at Pontefract Library and can be requested free of charge at any district library.
