About the event
Chris Wallace-Crabbe at the 23rd Aldeburgh Poetry Festival.
Reading: Jane Draycott, Leontia Flynn, Chris Wallace-Crabbe.
Three generations – from England, Ireland and Australia.
Jane Draycott heightens our perceptions with her scrupulous
illuminations of past and present, of the gap between
expectation and reality. Endearing and unsettling,
Leontia Flynn takes us on new memorable journeys in her
ambitious third collection, launched at the Festival.
Chris Wallace-Crabbe demonstrates his unflagging curiosity
and resourcefulness in quietly philosophical poems about our
complicated lives: joyous, shrewd, elegiac, funny. Tickets: £14. Call box office on 01728 687110 or visit: www.thepoetrytrust.org
