THURSDAY 11 APRIL at 6 p.m. - SOLD OUT
Legendary rock star and philanthropist Bob Geldof KBE will read some of the most beautiful and profound writing about love ever to appear in the English language, namely the love letters and poems by John Keats. In 2018 Bob Geldof contributed a preface to the book Love is my Religion: Keats on Love, selected and edited by Duncan Wu and published by the Keats-Shelley House in Rome.
After the reading, a reception will follow in which the audience will have the chance to meet and greet Bob Geldof, and have books signed by him.
Bob Geldof is a musician and does other stuff as well. He was born in Ireland in 1951. He likes Yeats, Keats, Larkin, some Elliot and Auden, a bit of Shelley, Blake, Dickinson and Whitman and a few others. He recently wrote and presented an award-winning film on Yeats for the BBC...and that's about it.
