Don Paterson


ANYONE who can should come and see Don Paterson reading his poetry on May 22 in Woodstock, Oxfordshire.

The indefatigable team at Woodstock Bookshop have just arranged for this leading contemporary poet to come to Woodstock and give a reading on 22 May at 7pm in Woodstock Methodist Church which is across the road from the bookshop on the main drag.

Although the reading has been arranged at short notice, anyone who wants to go probably needs to book. Email Rachel Phipps on info@woodstockbookshop.co.uk .

Mr Paterson has been in Oxford this term, as Weidenfeld Visiting Professor of Comparative Literature at St Anne’s College, Oxford, where he gave a series of four lectures on different aspects of poetry. This will be a reading of his own poems – his Selected Poems is about to be published in paperback by Faber and there should be advance copies available to buy.

Don Paterson is a wonderful poet – for information about him see his website, here.
