On Thursday 19th May, 7.30 pm, at The Albert Hotel, Huddersfield. And what a wonderful evening it was. Back room at The Albert packed with poets and Mark’s family and friends.
Let Steve Ely speak for those present: ‘A superb evening – Mark’s reading was sensitive, gentle, decisive and well-judged – as are his poems – honest and genuinely moving. Powerful readings from Carola and Stephanie Bowgett. One of the best poetry events I’ve attended in recent years. Take a bow Bob Horne for the good work you’re doing with Calder Valley Poetry.’ Steve, thanks for that endorsement, and thanks to the 40+ people who were there for a memorable occasion.
Anyone wanting a copy of ‘The Raven and the Laughing Head’ or any other publications of Calder Valley Poetry, go to ‘Bookshop’ on this website.
