Peter Riley’s pamphlet Hushings was given a fine send-off last evening in the Media Store at the new Halifax library. A wonderful venue in a wonderful building. Peter read the poems, a sequel to his earlier publication Pennine Tales, and also read even more recent work on the theme of the upper Calder valley, which has become his adopted home. He also read a poem to commemorate the forthcoming centenary of the birth of WS Graham.

John Foggin, Michael Haslam, Carola Luther and Judith Willson were outstanding guest poets. They and the large audience contributed to a memorable evening.
