Our next book club meeting offers something a little different – a collection of poetry arranged and designed to help address everyday problems and difficulties. As heard on BBC Radio 4, the essential prescriptions from William Sieghart’s poetic dispensary.
” Sometimes only a poem will do. These poetic prescriptions and wise words of advice offer comfort, delight and inspiration for all; a space for reflection, and a chance to realize – I’m not the only one who feels like this”
“Truly a marvellous collection … There is balm for the soul, fire for the belly, a cooling compress for the fevered brow, solace for the wounded, an arm around the lonely shoulder – the whole collection is a matchless compound of hug, tonic and kiss” Stephen Fry
We’re meeting in Leith to discuss the collection on Thursday 2 April at 7.30pm. Contact Jenny Clarke for full details. All welcome – you don’t have to be a member of Sunday Assembly Edinburgh.
