Thanks to Sarah Corbett and Kim Moore for a wonderful night. Sarah delivered a fantastic lecture and feature poet Kim Moore, despite feeling compromised by a bad cough charmed us all. Keith Hutson, read for Kim when her voice faltered. It was a double act celebrating Kim's poetry. The audience really appreciated Kim's efforts to be there and perform when she felt she could have cancelled.
In the words of Bob Horne:
"Another wonderful evening at Kava, expertly organised by Anthony and Shirley-Anne. Great to meet Kim Moore, whose poems I've admired since I first came across them. And if you don't follow her weekly Sunday blog, begin now - https://kimmoorepoet.wordpress.com.
Sarah Corbett, clothed in the Calder valley, started things with an engrossing Hughes/Plath-inspired lecture. Andy Smith got us all talking with his reading of Paul Muldoon's 'Why Brownlee Left'. Followed by a rich variety of open mic contributions."
This month's poetry discussion took place around 'Why Brownlee Left', by Paul Muldoon, chosen and read by Andy Smith. A lively discussion ensued.
10 open mic poets read:
- Shirley-Anne Kennedy
- Anthony Costello

- Keith Hutson
