MACMILLAN FUNDRAISER featuring London poet and winner of the Hippocrates Poetry Prize, WENDY FRENCH.
Wendy French’s meticulously observed and profoundly moving new collection, Thinks Itself a Hawk grew out of a residency with the University College Hospital Macmillan Cancer Centre in London.
Working with patients, sharing in their hopes and fears, tracking the everyday endeavours of a vital medical hub, Wendy French found herself drawn into lives in which blood tests, diagnosis, chemotherapy and hope become part of the human experience.
Music: LES KAZOOS D’AMOUR
OPEN MIC: slots available for poets and musicians
