Thursday January31st at 7 p.m. – Poetry reading with Joe Neal. Award-winning actor and poet Joe Neal will share his ‘ tuned thoughts’ on the night. He says of writing poetry: ‘Putting a poem together is a very strange exercise of thought: an idea drifts into the mind and grabs your attention. It chases after words, setting them into a kind of melody. I would call this ‘ tuned thoughts’ – and that may be a good definition of a poem.’ Joe, who lives near Castlebridge, will be introducing poems from his newly published sixth collection – Rossetti’s Wombat. He recently returned from an arts council bursary tour of New England and last year won the Anthony Cronin International Poetry Award for his poem Allegheny Man which, he says, was prompted by a visit to the Allegheny Mountains in West Virginia where he discovered a ruined cabin and tried to imagine the life of the person who once lived there. Booking essential.
