HEAD  LINES Two prizewinning poets, Sally Festing and 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.
