JOHN HUDSON & CHRYS SALT

"It is honest. Nothing false, nothing for effect, above all nothing seemingly simulated. That engaging traveller with eyes wide open and alert to the absurd, the beautiful, the dark, death. It celebrates, mourns, observes, wonders."

Artist Jeremy Carlisle on John's latest publication, Earth

Evening starts at 7.30 pm with readers from the floor, then an inverval, followed the guest poets. Admission is £5/£3 (according to pocket). To book (not necessary) ring Susan on 0207
267 2751 / 0207 482 0044.

If you enjoy, love, study or simply respect poetry you must see Chrys Salt and John Hudson join forces to offer a combined reading from their latest collections. Themed, though-provoking and fun, these two award winning poets have nearly twenty years of experience working and reading together.

Katherine Gallagher describes Chrys and John reading together as "A pretty formidable team"-come and find out why.

John Hudson biog for Torriano reading:

I have been writing poetry since before I dropped out of school at 17. I continued to do so when I left London to live in Scotland, publishing, performing and placing poetry in the environment as installations. I also edited the literary magazine, Markings, between 1995 and 2010. I write for a living and divide my time between Scotland, London and South West France. My latest collection, published by Luath of Edinburgh, appeared in 2012 and is entitled "Earth".
