POETRY & TALKS
7 October 2017
If you like poetry but aren’t quite sure where to start or which poem suits your particular mood, then you are in need of a visit to the Poetry Pharmacy. William Sieghart, author of a new anthology The Poetry Pharmacy: Tried-and-True Prescriptions for the Heart, Mind and Soul is available for appointments on Saturday 7th October at the Lutyens & Rubinstein bookshop from 3 pm where he will prescribe the perfect poetry for your ailment. Sieghart is a man who knows his poems – he established the Forward Prizes for poetry in 1992, founded National Poetry Day in 1994 and is currently chairman of both the Somerset House Trust and Forward Thinking, a charity seeking peace in the Middle East and acceptance of British Muslims. His Poetry Pharmacy has appeared in The Guardian, on Radio 4 and on television and he is a firm believer that whether you are suffering from loneliness, lack of courage, heartbreak or hopelessness, that sometimes only a poem will bring both comfort and inspiration. Appointments are £12 including the book but spaces are limited, so don’t delay! (And if you can’t make it to the Pharmacy, do try this online Quiz instead).
