Very happy to say that Les Murray (“Australia’s greatest living poet” and my personal favourite) is going to be reading and discussing his poetry in a rare and brief visit to the U.K. He will be at Goldsmith’s University at 6 p.m on 6th May. More details here. Astonishingly this is a FREE event. Free, as in you need pay zero money!
I will be going for sure. I saw him at the Southbank about 11 years ago. I was incredibly moved by his poetry, and hearing him was a privilege. Each poem was made crystal clear by his reading, and it is one of my treasured memories. I sound ultra gushy I know, but really I found it remarkable.
Anyone interested in going can contact Ben Pester at Goldsmith’s or leave a comment here and I’ll pass on your interest.
