42. UA Fanthorpe event with RV Bailey and Alison Brackenbury

Alison Brackenbury and R V Bailey introduce Beginner’s Luck, a collection of previously unpublished poems by the late great U A Fanthorpe, who died ten years ago, and whose ninetieth birthday would have been this July.

Witty, erudite, humane, Fanthorpe’s poetry – as the celebrated Gillian Clarke put it – ‘changed the way we see, the way we write’.
