In the series POEMS IN THE QUAKER MEETING HOUSE
at 43 St Giles Oxford
Philip Gross and Lesley Saunders will read from their book A PART OF THE MAIN: A CONVERSATION (Mulfran, 2019), a dialogic poem, even an improvisation, born of the difficult feelings and public discord arising from the events of 2016.
Philip is a Quaker as well as a T.S.Eliot prize winner and author of 20 collections of poems.
Lesley is author of several books of poetry, most recently Nominy-Dominy (Two Rivers Press, 2018). She is a creative collaborator with many other ‘makers’ of different art forms.
Lesley and Philip first met through a collaborative poetry venture A Game of Consequences in which 26 poets were invited to share their thoughts and feelings about living in a nuclear age.
This reading will be at 6.30 for 7pm till 9pm on Sat. October 12th
For the reading: free admission + a collection (for the Quaker Meeting House) + refreshments
