A World Poetry Day Celebration.

A World Poetry Day Celebration with Frank Ormsby, Moyra Donaldson and Alice Lyons, chaired by Paul Maddern.

Picture the scene: you are stranded on a desert island with nothing but poetry to sustain you. What three collections would you take with you if they were all you had to read?

To celebrate World Poetry Day, three poets join Paul Maddern to talk about the collections they would choose, what those collections mean to them and also, in true desert island style, which single volume of Seamus Heaney’s poetry they would also like to be stranded with!

Celebrated poets Frank Ormsby, Alice Lyons and Moyra Donaldson will be making the hard decisions in this celebration of what poetry means to us on World Poetry Day.
