An evening of poetry and prose with writer Mike Parker and National Poet of Wales Hanan Issa.

Mike will be reading from his latest book All the Wide Border: Wales, England and the Places Between, named by Waterstones as one of the ten best travel books of the year. Jesse Armstrong, creator of Succession, said, "I loved this book. Mike Parker weaves together a great deal of wide reading, hard thinking and soulful tramping in his funny, thoughtful and evocative investigation of the Welsh–English border."

Hanan will be reading from My Body Can House Two Hearts, of which the newly elected Archdruid Mererid Hopwood says, ‘this unique Collection shows that Welsh, Arabic and English flow side by side and sometimes share the same waters.’

This wonderful opportunity to hear Mike and Hanan together will make for a thought provoking, humorous and uplifting evening.

Sioned Wiliam will be moderating.
