Join us for readings from poetry on the theme of women left behind in contemporary war.
In a year when the battles of the Somme and Verdun have been attracting so much media attention we bring you a different perspective, that of women and war today. Two poets, Bryony Doran and Isabel Palmer, both mothers of young British soldiers who have served in Afghanistan, will be take part and the event will culminate with a minute’s silence at 11:00 to commemorate lives lost in war.
The event will be introduced by Ruth Padel and Neil Astley.
At the end of the event there will be a collection for Care for Casualties
