The Tree Line – poetry at Pilgrims' Hall 2:00pm Saturday 9 September
Maura Dooley will be giving a reading as part of Winchester Poetry festival.
2017 is the 800th anniversary of the Charter for Forests, and the Woodland Trust together with over 50 other organisations are marking the occasion by publishing a 'Charter for Trees, Woods & People'. As part of the celebration Worple Press commissioned new poems from 60 poets for the anthology The Tree Line: poems for Trees, Woods & People.
This reading – in the beautiful setting of Winchester's Pilgrims Hall – features Maura Dooley, Michael McKimm, Rachel Curzon and Stephen Boyce, all of whom are included in the anthology, and will celebrate trees in all their diversity. You'll hear poems about the many ways that trees have shaped – and go on shaping – our society, landscape and lives.
