And so The Poetry Pharmacy came to be. Each poem in his carefully curated collection cures a specific condition from fear of the unknown to failure in love.
Sieghart will tell the story of his book to award-winning novelist and poetry enthusiast Jeanette Winterson. They will talk about the unique healing power of poetry and the ‘peace’ that comes from realising that a stranger feels the same way as you do.
A cast of star actors will bring the poems to life through live recitals: Bonham Carter is joined by Sue Perkins, one half of the comedy duo Mel & Sue, and Sophie Okonedo the Oscar-nominated screen and stage actor. This is a must-see for poetry lovers.
