This event has been and gone.
Pam Ayres visits the Marine for the first time in her over 40-year career, to talk about her new book of poetry, Up In The Attic, and to sign copies.
Up in the Attic is the brand-new collection of verse from one of the nation’s favourite poets, Pam Ayres, published on 26 September by Ebury Press.
With the same magic that has enchanted her fans for more than four decades, Pam’s new collection is by turns side-splittingly funny, at others so reflective and profound that audiences are moved to tears. From the horror of playing host in ‘The Dinner Party’ and complaints about pub tableware in ‘Don’t Put My Dinner on the Slate!’, to the poignant ‘Up in the Attic’, in which Pam is deluged by memories when searching for an old document, and the sadness of wartime ‘Down The Line’, this new collection will tickle and move readers in equal measure.
Pam will talk for about an hour, after which she will sign copies of her books.
Pam Ayres has been a writer, broadcaster, and entertainer for over 40 years, and is one of the few authors who has had books in the Sunday Times bestseller charts in almost every decade since the 1970s. 'Pam Ayres has an incredible way with an audience. She was really one of the funniest comics I've seen, and it's because of her rapport. She just treats the audience like a huge roomful of friends' (The York Press) 'Pam Ayres is a proper poet, whose wistful, funny, and perceptive verse captures both the joy and unfairness of life’ (The Sunday Times).
