Chrys Salt
Sunday, 18 November 2018 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm
Edinburgh Quaker Meeting House

As part of this year's WWI commemorations award-winning poet Chrys Salt MBE presents Home Line/Front Line, a dialogue in letters and poetry with film settings, between Chrys, a pacifist mother and her soldier son. Donations welcome and will support Quaker Peace and Social Witness.

Home Front/Front Line was published in 2013 to mark the 10th anniversary of the Iraq war.

"...a brave, beautiful and deeply unsettling way of making the reader look again at long-familiar events, as though the mother of Wilfred Owen or Edward Thomas had kept a verse diary during the first world war." Morning Star

"(It) seems that WWI wasn't the only war to produce poetry of grandeur." The Journal

"- a poet who can read her written poetry exceptionally well - in fact the best I've heard" Cheltenham Poetry Fest
