Samantha Wynne-Rhydderch - Banjo
Currently Leverhulme Poet in Residence at the National Museum of Wales, award-winning Welsh poet Samantha Wynne-Rhydderch follows Not in These Shoes, shortlisted for Wales Book of the Year, with her third collection, Banjo. Commemorating Captain Scott's 1912 arrival at the South Pole in a clutch of remarkable elegies and set-pieces on life, death and survival, Banjo gives us new psychological insight into the lives of the early Antarctic pioneers, as well as an extraordinary account of the role played by music in surviving the long Antarctic winters. Foyles welcomes Samantha for a performance of her work, followed by a signing and drinks.
