An Evening with Christopher Meredith

Join us in The Poetry Bookshop for a long overdue evening with our friend, the award winning novelist, poet and translator, Christopher Meredith.

His first novel, Shifts, is regarded as a modern classic. He has broadcast on radio and TV and given readings and talks all round Britain as well as in the Czech Republic, Egypt, Estonia, France, Germany, Finland, Ireland, Slovenia and the USA.

Reading from his latest poetry collection, Still, published in April 2021 as well as from earlier work from Air Histories and The Meaning of Flight

Please join us if you can. It promises to be a great evening in the company of a monolith of Welsh literature.

Here he is holding up Brecon Library.
