Lifting the Sky in Words and Pictures

Wokingham Libraries presents a series of three online, illustrated talks by visual artist Chris Holley on the mutual creative inspiration between herself and poet Myra Schneider in which you hear about, see – and get chance to discuss – the poems that inspired the painting and, in turn, the paintings that inspired the poems.

All sessions will take place online via Microsoft Teams. To book email and further joining instructions will be sent to you.
