Late last year, a book was launched in celebration of the writing of the last two centuries from this part of the world:
Futures Forum: Literature and Landscape in East Devon: book launch: Friday 12th December
Tomorrow, as a relief from the politics of the last weeks, there will be a celebration of one of East Devon's foremost literary voices - from the town he grew up in.
This is the invitation:
You are warmly invited to an illustrated talk entitled "Visions of
Childhood" in St Mary's Church, Ottery . This will focus on Samuel Taylor
Coleridge and other writers associated with Ottery. Pixies have been give a
special dispensation by the vicar to perform in the church. The talk will be
illustrated with slides by Peter Nasmyth, author of "Literature and Landscape in
East Devon", and Coleridge's poetry will be read by Robert Crick in
The event starts promptly at 7pm on Saturday 9 May and entry is
free. There is free parking at Sainsbury's from 6pm.
