Poetry is like bread!
The Nobel prize-winning poet, Pablo Neruda, said that: “Poetry is like bread. It should be shared by all, by scholars and the man on the street corner, by all our vast, incredible, extraordinary family of humanity."

In Eyrecourt Library on this coming Wednesday evening, November 24th, at 7.30pm, we would like to share with you the poetry (in translation) of Hungary!

Hungarians have tended to the belief that poetry can change social life. We hope that a few of the people who attend might read aloud a Hungarian poem or paragraph which they like and which has been translated into English. There are some really interesting pieces, and the translated poems will be available in the Eyrecourt Library in advance.

Please join us. AND REMEMBER....if you do not wish to read there will be no problem: you are under no pressure to do anything but sit and listen and enjoy the event. We would like to make this a very enjoyable and social evening for everyone.

Hope you can make it!

Thank you for reading this.
