Tonight – The Story Sessions does Family and Poetry

job 1283012 Family talesA6A small reminder that tonight’s story session includes some poetry. Three poets, Esther Poyer, Anne Macaulay and Matt Bryden join short story specialist (and playwright) Nicolas Ridley and prize-winning novelist, author of Rudyard & Trix, Mary Hamer to tell you tales about that complex social structure, the family. Just the thing if you are recovering from spending the festive season with your nearest kin!

Matt will be coming hot-foot from an award ceremony, so may be a bit late. We have a B plan.

Do you like the photo by the way? The girl on the left is my maternal grandmother, Evelyn Blowfield.  her mother is Rebecca Kipling, but despite family stories to the contrary, there is no evidence that we are related to Rudyard. It would have been a nice link, but on this occasion truth wins out over fiction.

Join us at the Ivy House at 7.45 for an 8pm start.
