Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution, Queen Square, Bath
On Saturday 28th July, the Bath Writers & Artists will be embarking on an adventurous afternoon of readings and images inspired by the wanderings of Odysseus. Wells poet AMA BOLTON, who provided the impetus for the July programme, is giving a solo reading of Warp, her imaginative personal journey through Homer’s Odyssey. We will also be celebrating the continuing delight of the Bath Poetry Cafe anthology, The Listening Walk, five of whose original eight editors will be with us in the room. Frome poet and author ROSIE JACKSON will introduce readings by some of the original contributors to her set, As If the Sea and we will have a slide presentation of the work of MALCOLM ASHMAN RWA, RBA, ROI who provided the much loved cover image for the anthology and is now a member of the Bath Writers & Artists group. Fourteen readers from Wells, Bristol, Bradford on Avon, Radstock and Bath will be presenting Homeric pieces by major Russian, Greek, North American, Scottish and Irish writers and we will also be sharing thoughts about the terrible political events which engulfed Greece in the middle years of the twentieth century.
There will be new pamphlets – from VERONA BASS and ANN PRESTON – and the usual delicious tea.
THIS IS A FREE EVENT TO WHICH ALL ARE WELCOME.
DOORS OPEN AT 1.45pm
