Patron of The Charles Causley Trust, Sir Andrew Motion, will be reading in Plymouth, a place closely associated with Charles Causley, on Friday 24 October.
Concentrating on Sir Andrew’s most recent collection The Customs House, he will also read from The Cinder Path, shortlisted for the Ted Hughes Award for New Work in Poetry, and welcomes questions about his writing and the role of Poet Laureate.
The Customs House is in three sections, and opens with a sequence of war poems, Laurels and Donkeys, which draws on soldiers’ experiences from the First and Second World wars, through to the recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Location: Theatre 1, Roland Levinsky Building, Plymouth University.
Tickets: £10, Concessions £8, Friend of Plymouth International Book Festival (PIBF) £6.00.
