AN AFTERNOON WITH THE READER AND SIMON ARMITAGE on Thursday 27th January 2022

Experience the joy of Shared Reading – live and aloud – in this online event where we’ll be exploring the work of Poet Laureate, Simon Armitage, together. At the end of the session, Simon himself will join us to read and take part in a live Q&A.

If you’ve never experienced Shared Reading before, this is the perfect opportunity to give it a try. Our friendly Reader Leaders will guide you as we begin by reading from a selection of Simon’s poems. Among them will be poems that link to the idea of ‘Walking the Earth’, which is the theme of our bookshelf for 2021-22.

‘Walking the Earth’ is inspired by the journeys, both physical and metaphorical, that we take to become who we are, and about living alongside our fellow humans on – and with – Planet Earth.

We’ll talk and reflect as we read and as with all Shared Reading groups, there’s no pressure to read aloud or speak. How you choose to experience Shared Reading is up to you.

Simon Armitage’s first book ‘Zoom!’ introduced a poet who combined flawless poetic technique with everyday language, in poems that found beauty in ordinary events and occurrences. In addition to his poetry collections, Simon has written extensively for radio, TV and theatre, and has published two novels.
