Poetry reading with Christopher Reid

29 September 2017

The Pilgrims Hospices and the School of English invite you to an evening of poetry with celebrated poet Christopher Reid as part of the Canterbury Festival.  Lucinda Gane, Christopher's wife, died in October 2005.  'A Scattering' is his tribute to her and consists of four poetic sequences, the first written during her final illness and the other three at intervals after her death.   The collection has been described by the Guardian as "a lucid, cogent panorama of grief and loss" which "invite the reader in without reserve".

The reading will be held at 6:30pm on Saturday 14th October at Waterstones in Canterbury.   Tickets are £3 and are available from the venue, with proceeds going to the Pigrims Hospice.
