Wantage Literary Festival Event: Pam Ayres
Pam Ayres – Up in the Attic
Up in the Attic is the brand-new collection of verse from the nation’s favourite poet, Pam Ayres. With the same magic that has enchanted her fans for more than four decades, Pam’s new collection is by turn side-splittingly funny, at others so reflective and profound that audiences are moved to tears.
From the horror of playing host in ‘The Dinner Party’ and complaints about pub tableware in ‘Don’t Put My Dinner on the Slate!’, to the poignant ‘Up in the Attic’, in which Pam is deluged by memories when on the search for an old document, and the sadness of wartime ‘Down The Line’, this new collection will tickle and move readers in equal measure.
