Templar Poetry Festival: Paul Maddern and Oliver Comins
Sun 27 August 2017, 19:00 – 20:00 BST
These two acclaimed Templar poets will be coming together to read from their catalogue of work, including Paul Maddern's first collection, ‘The Beachcomber's Report’, which was shortlisted in Ireland's Best First Collection Award - the Strong Award sponsored by the Irish Times, and Oliver Comins' ‘Battling Against the Odds’ - a joyful, witty and stimulating collection about the game of golf and the sport of life.
*This event is part of the Templar Poetry Festival. In a first event of its kind, Keats House will be hosting a festival to celebrate the publications and poets of Templar Poetry, an independent publisher championing high-quality, modern poetry. Listen to pop-up readings throughout the day at Keats House and browse beautifully-crafted titles in the festival bookshop. The readings and bookshop are included in admission to the museum (open from 11am - 5pm), workshops and talks are charged separately.
