Wendy Cope - Family Values

Tuesday 19th April 2011 6:30pm - 7:30pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event

Described as one of England's wittiest contemporary poets whilst equally revered for the seriousness of her subject matter, Wendy Cope joins us for a rare public appearance this evening.
In her new book, Family Values, with mordant humour she remembers the wounds of a damaged childhood, and recalls the inevitable problems of ageing with an intriguing blend of sadness and joy. Wendy will be in conversation with Jonathan Barker from the British Council.
Join us for an evening of great poetry and good conversation; Wendy will also be signing copies of her books.

 

Venue: The Gallery at Foyles
Tickets: Free
