HEAD LINES Two prizewinning poets, Sally Festingand Peter Wallis, present poems about the head, both in its physical and mental aspects. How can the effects of something like schizophrenia, bear on future generations? Family history and a cache of intimate letters suggest answers. Similarly, how does repeated brain surgery impact on families? What if the patient has an identical twin? The answers come, in Andrew McMillan’s words, in poems that see “life as something tentative as well as tender”. We enjoy rapport with audiences, and welcome discussion at half time and at the end of our readings.
