This just in from The Ver Poets:
Ver Poets are staging an event titled Poetry and Music of the Middle East on Tuesday December 1st at 7.30 pm in St Albans. The high point is a reading by the leading poet and conservationist Ruth Padel from her book Learning to Make an Oud in Nazareth.
The flight of refugees from the region will be a major theme because of Ruth’s interest in migration and exile, as shown in her previous book The Mara Crossing.
Tickets £5 from Maltings Arts Theatre website. See poster >>
