James Goodman ‘Claytown’, Wednesday 4th April

Wheal Martyn China Clay Museum, Carthew, St Austell Wednesday 4th April James Goodman, originally from St Austell, will be reading from his first poetry collection, ‘Claytown’ (7.30-9pm, free event).

Claytown features many poems about the clay country, and is published by Salt Publishing.

Penelope Shuttle says: “These are poems crafted to match the physical nature and power of Cornwall’s post-industrial landscape, rich with awareness of the fractured histories that define this region far off the tourist trail. Cornwall’s mineral, maritime and moorland realities are present here in a vital and present-day idiom, shot through with tough and compelling lyricism. An exciting and thoughtful debut.”
