Following June's reading event with celebrated international author, Louise Candlish, this time, our focus is the profound book, 'Climbing Clouds Catching Comets' by Alexander 'King' Paul, a collection of his poems, spoken word pieces and innermost thoughts. 

Sadly, Alexander passed away last year, aged 23 following a difficult battle with terminal brain cancer. His mother, Joanna Brown will read, alongside two performance poets.

Climbing Clouds Catching Comets has been described by Afua Hirsch as clambering "inside the mind of a writer whose talent fizzes on the page." 

The reading will focus on some of Alexander's writings on social issues including themes of family, love, identity, homelessness, loneliness and isolation and will pay tribute to both Alexander and his book. 

Entry to the event is FREE - the book will be on sale that  evening and all book proceeds will go to the Alexander Paul Organisation

A Small Plates and Bar Menu will be available for those wanting to enjoy quality dishes, wine and cocktails and doors open for dining at 6pm. The reading starts at 7.45pm.
