Reading at Ledbury Poetry Festival

On 10 July at the Ledbury Poetry Festival, Rosalind Hudis will read from her latest collection Restorations (Seren 2021), which takes the reader on a journey into what it means to preserve – a monument, a moment, a life-story, a poppy. It’s about the hunger to possess and the need to let go. ‘If a poem is like a picture, these are history paintings, rich in human detail and many-layered in their brushwork’ (Matthew Francis). Also reading will be Isabel Galleymore whose first collection, Significant Other, won the John Pollard Foundation International Poetry Prize in 2020 and was shortlisted for the Forward Best First Collection Prize and Seamus Heaney First Collection Prize. Tickets: £5.00. For further information and to book visit:
