SCARBOROUGH: The Dead Snail Diaries - Live!

Thursday, 28th July, 2011, 6pm-7.30pm, £3 on the door, refreshments provided
Scarborough Library,
Vernon Road,
North Yorkshire,
YO11 2NN

For one night only, Valley Press presents a complete reading of Jamie McGarry's third collection of poetry, The Dead Snail Diaries. Already a somewhat unique book (to say the least), the live version adds further layers to the extraordinary story of a man, a shoe and a snail, with topics covered including the unhealthy relationship between snails and slugs, details of the fruitless pursuit that is snail speed dating, and the psychological mindset needed to become a snail-racing champion.  The poet will be joined in this task by distinguished local writers Felix Hodcroft and Catherine Boddy.
