About the event
Kay Ryan at the 23rd Aldeburgh Poetry Festival. Q&A.
‘If I don’t write poetry, in the profoundest way I have no way to think’ says America’s recent Laureate Kay Ryan, selfconfessed ‘sheriff of emptiness’ and ‘rehabilitator of clichés’. The Poetry Trust’s Director Naomi Jaffa asks her about the dream of being a bicycle mechanic or stand-up comedian, the siren of rhyme, the exciting ‘uselessness’ of poetry – and more. Tickets £8.
