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.”
