Event description

****Radio 4 will be recording this event and we're looking for volunteers to have poetry prescribed to them. More info here

“… the whole collection is a matchless compound of hug, tonic and kiss. I cried at least five times.” Stephen Fry

Chorleywood Bookshop are delighted to spend an evening with William Sieghart and his collections of poetry for the heart, mind and soul. There's something for everyone!

The book "The Poetry Pharmacy Tried-and-True Prescriptions for the Heart, Mind and Soul" began after he "prescribed" poetry to friends to help them through difficult times in their life. His second book, "The Poetry Pharmacy Returns: More Prescriptions for Courage, Healing and Hope" is out on the 26th September.

William Sieghart beautifully meditates on ‘the problems that really matter’. This pocket-sized book presents the most essential poems in his dispensary: those which, again and again, have really shown themselves to work. Whether you are suffering from loneliness, lack of courage, heartbreak, hopelessness, or even from an excess of ego, there is something here to ease your pain. The Poetry Pharmacy Returns caters to all-new conditions while drilling further down into the universals: this time, the challenges of family life, and of living as a person among others, receive a much closer look.

It's the perfect gift for the treasured friends, barely tolerated siblings, beloved aunts and revered grandparents in your life.

William Sieghart is the founder of the Forward Poetry Prize and National Poetry Day. He is chairman of the Somerset House Trust, was commissioned by the government to review libraries and is an ardent ambassador for poetry.
