Pam Ayres on Animals

The event will include a 20 minute interval and will be followed by a book signing.

Pam Ayres has been entertaining the nation with her poems and stories for over 40 years. Join her for an evening featuring her work, old and new, from her many books.

Her latest, Pam Ayres on Animals, is an anthology of most of her animal poems.

From her very first encounter with a friendly golden Labrador at just three years old, Pam Ayres has been enchanted by animals. She has owned sheep, hens and naughty puppies and fallen in love with British wildlife from our hedgehogs to our bees. This definitive collection brings to life the charming characters and voices of all creatures great and small through Pam's poetry over the last five decades. Including old favourites, such as 'I'm a Starling Me Darling' and ‘Ode to a Jack Russell', and new works written just for this collection, such as ‘My Sister’s Cat Does Not Like Me’, this collection is perfect for all animal lovers.
