The Glass Aisle - An Evening of Poetry with Paul Henry

Poet/Singer/Songwriter BBC Presenter Paul Henry will read from his acclaimed collections 'The Brittle Sea' and 'A Boy Running' (shortlisted for the Wales Book of the Year 2016) before reading from his brand new poetry collection 'The Glass Aisle'.
From the sea of the poet's childhood to the stillness of a canal walked in middle-age, 'The Glass Aisle' moves between rage and stillness, past and present, music and silence. 
Paul Henry is a Writing Fellow at the University of South Wales, and has performed his work at festivals throughout Europe, Asia and the USA.
His work has been described as 'haunting and elegiac' by Gillian Clarke, and 'virtuosic' by Carol Ann Duffy.
Paul will read from his work at an event in the Town Hall in Dorchester from 8.30pm on Thursday 19th July, as a specially invited guest of the Thomas Hardy Society during their 50th Anniversary Hardy Festival celebrations.
Tickets are £10 each for non-conference delegates, which includes entry into a performance of 'A Pure Woman' by The Hardy Players, 7.00pm, St. Peter's Church, High West St, Dorchester.
