Poetry in Headingley Library this month

Two (free) 'Between the Lines' events:


Douglas Houston
T.F. Griffin
T.F. GRIFFIN AND DOUGLAS HOUSTON - A CELEBRATION
FRIDAY 9 JUNE 7pm

A joyful celebration of the lives and works of two much loved poets—the late T.F. Griffin and Douglas Houston


Poems, reminiscences, music, and the launch of Doug’s ’Last Poems’—a ‘bitter sweet postscript’ published by Shoestring Press. 
Readings by Pam Scobie and friends. Music by Des the Miner.


SONNET SESSIONS - JAMES NASH AND DI SLANEY
WEDNESDAY 21 JUNE 7pm

Di Slaney and James Nash share their worlds of nature, animals and personal history in sonnets laced with wit and wry humour. 
Expect warmth and engagement from these two poets in writing that is direct, funny and unafraid; they offer hard won optimism and honesty in a shaky contemporary world. 
They will share new material and work from their latest collections published by Valley Press
