Poetry Reading with Chris Fitzpatrick: Poetic Licence in a Time of Corona
23rd June 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
Join us for an evening of poetry with Chris Fitzpatrick, former Master of The Coombe, as he launches his first poetry collection, Poetic Licence in a Time of Corona.
Chris recently spoke to Ryan Tubridy – listen to the interview here:
A medic finds healing for himself by writing poems on his phone as the pandemic grips – rhythm, rhyme, haiku, a list-poem of what to do when someone can’t breathe, why Lionel Richie keeps sending him emails. Chris Fitzpatrick finds comfort in poets past, in Strictly Come Dancing, in what he’ll say to the Brazilian woman at the checkout when it’s all over. His fear, his grief, his laughter, his joy become ours too, as we are healed by the magic of his words.
