North Manchester FM: Hannah’s Bookshelf, Saturday 3 September, 2-4pm

radio 2

Join me on Saturday at 2pm on North Manchester FM for Hannah’s Bookshelf. This week’s guest is the brilliant Seamus Kelly. Regular listeners might remember that Seamus was one of the poets who appeared on my Live Poetry Special in July (part of the station’s Live Music Day).

Seamus is a poet living in the north of England with deep roots in the west of Ireland. He is a rare combination of scientist and artist who can sometimes be prone to thinking too much. In his recent first collection of poetry, Thinking Too Much, Seamus invites the reader to think about life, family, nature, politics, justice peace and society. There are moving memories, human stories, powerful images and touches of humour. Seamus has been described by prominent Yorkshire poet, James Nash, as a writer of passionate precision and great humanity.

I’ll be chatting to Seamus about his poetry and writing. And, of course, he’ll be sharing his selections for Apocalypse Books.

Catch us on Saturday and 2pm on 106.6FM (if you’re in the North Manchester area) or listen online (if you’re further afield).
