Where the Hares Are
John Gilham returns to Launch his third collection of poetry Where the Hares Are on the afternoon of the 19th January 2020. This collection follows his incredibly successful Fosdyke and Me and the masterful Learning to Breathe which presents John’s strong sense of the past and which is a springboard for reflections on our present and future. John is the master of the lyrical and after reading his poems you know you have experienced something life changing and unique.
In Where the Hares Are John ponders his place in the world: he is a child of the war-wracked 20th century, facing the environmental challenges of the 21st, yet finding enough to celebrate in close observation of the natural world, in the music of cities, the exhilaration of weather and the power of love.

Sunday 19th January 3 – 5pm
Clements Hall, Nunthorpe Road, York YO23 1BW
Music: Slack Habits
Poetry & Prose: John Gilham, Katie Greenbrown, Alan Smith

“John Gilham takes us on a magical mystery tour through time and place, winding from `the wide sky` above the hare, through dark of warzone and murder scene, ravaging storm and threat to nature, onward into the light of childhood, love and wisdoms we collect along the way. At times humorous, at times sensitive, he provokes thought in the reader with his own authentic voice.” – Adrienne Silcock, novelist and poet.
Parking at Scarcroft School, opposite the hall (satnav. YO23 1DS)
