Saturday 9th October 2021

Natasha Dahlberg • Andrew Fusek Peters
Mark Huband • JLM Morton

7.30 pm for 8 • Reading starts at 8 • Free entry • Books for sale on the night (cash sales)

We are delighted to be able to resume our live readings at The Museum,
with thanks to Abigail and the museum staff.

The museum is following ‘covid-secure’ protocols.  
The pavilion doors will be wide open throughout the evening for fresh air and good ventilation,
and we ask guests to wrap up in warm layers or to bring a warm coat or blanket. 

Drinks will be served in the main building downstairs to free up space in the pavilion. 

The museum is also controlling numbers by asking people to pre-book for events.
This is a free event but please reserve your place
by logging on to the museum's TicketSource page,
or if that is a problem by emailing Yew Tree Press directly.


 

 

Natasha Dahberg lives in Brighton;
she is an actor, writer and jewellery designer
Natasha's poems are wittily autobiographical,
honest and humorous.
They have a jaunty seriousness
and their rhymes work a treat.
Sometimes they are
chatty & informal
but they are always precise & exact.
The book is beautifully presented
with illustrations by Natasha herself.

Mercury in Retrograde is her first volume of poetry.



Andrew's new book
of photographs
and poems
develops the theme
of 'flight',
through
extraordinary shots
not only of birds
& butterflies
but also of leaping fish,
frogs and squirrels,
shooting stars
and standing stones.
Andrew's poems
address the theme
by speaking directly
to the animal in question
in a way which brings
a new dimension to the photographs they accompany.

Iolo Williams said
of Andrew's previous book
Hill and Dale that it was
"full of truly stunning photographs:
I urge you to buy this book!"

For some of us,
Bob Dylan's songs
have accompanied our lives
for as long as we can remember,
and their highlights
and their shadows
have echoed
good times as well as
bad times.
Mark Huband takes us
on a journey through
a life lived under the shadow
of songs from 1963
("Girl from the North Country")
to 2020
(
"Crossing the Rubicon").
His sonnets are rich
with imagery,
allusive and delightfully
elusive.

 

JLM Morton will read some of her recent work.
She celebrates both nature and the crisis which the natural world is facing; she finds wilderness, nonetheless, in countryside close at hand.

She has a rich control of language and register which makes her work memorable and worthy of much re-reading.

 

 

All these books and more, including Autumn special offers, will be available for purchase on the night,
or online direct from Yew Tree Press or via on our 'Big Cartel' page.
