This afternoon’s readings present rich meditations on Nature, wildness and the idea of home. Carola Luther was born and brought up in rural South Africa and now lives in West Yorkshire. Her third collection, On the Way to the Jerusalem Farm, was published by Carcanet in 2021 and shortlisted for the 2022 Derek Walcott prize for poetry. Kris Johnson moved from Washington State to the UK in 2007. Ghost River, her first collection, is published by Bloodaxe in 2023. Matthew Hollis is a prizewinning biographer and editor and the author of The Waste Land: A Biography, published by Faber 2022. His second poetry collection, Earth House, is published by Bloodaxe this year.
