About this Event

Tony Kennedy, Chair of the John Hewitt Society, talks about one of our greatest poets, covering his life, poetry and its continuing relevance. Hewitt was born and spent his early years in nearby 96 Cliftonpark Avenue and the talk will be followed by a walk in the area where he grew up. He had a happy childhood during which many of his attitudes to life were shaped by his father who was principal of Agnes Street National School. The walk will retrace the road to school taken by a young John Hewitt and his sister in the early years of the last century.

John Hewitt’s poetry, remembering life at that time, will be read during the walk.

Transport advice. Free car parks at front and rear. Buses 57 & 12B.
