Tuesday 1st December, 7.30pm
The poems of How to Fly (in Ten Thousand Easy Lessons) find breath and lightness in the common business of living, from the bestselling author of The Poisonwood Bible. Join us for an evening with Barbara Kingsolver as she reads from her collection.
Barbara Kingsolver’s generous collection is divided into thematic sections that loop and interweave to form a carefully patterned whole. A wonderful series of ‘How to’ poems that balance tongue-in-cheek pragmatism with revelatory wisdom, a complicated yet affirmative family pilgrimage to Italy, cherished childhood memories, the perils and pleasures of being a [female] writer, elegies to lost loved ones, and elegies to the planet.
Village Books In partnership with our friends at Chorleywood Bookshop.
