An evening with Bernard Kops – and more

July 27, 2010

Bernard Kops will be reading from This Room in the Sunlight and talking about his life and work at Lauderdale House,  Highgate Hill, Waterlow Park, London  N6 5HG at 8pm on Thursday 19th August…..£5/£3 (concs) 020 8348 8716

His next major poetry reading will be at the Aldeburgh Poetry Festival during the weekend of November 5-7 where he has several readings including one with Andrew Motion and Elaine Feinstein. This is a cause for celebration. Aldeburgh Poetry Festival is the Poetry Society’s showpiece event for major poets and Kops who is better known as a dramatist can now show why his poetry is also deserving of the attention it is currently receiving.

July 12, 2010

Good news, the BBC R4 Reunion programme will be featuring the kindertransport. The Reunion programme is broadcast sometime over the summer when Desert Island Discs is on holiday – with a  Friday and Sunday lunchtime  repeat – two great slots. Producer Sarah Cuddon asked for a copy of Person of No Natioinality as  Ruth Barnett will be one of  the Kinder voices on the prog.  I hope Sue Macgregor is presenting, as she did last year.
