CD now available at the Sarn Cambria Store

CD Cover

The renowned local poet Ruth Bidgood has teamed up with Sarn Cambria to produce a CD of Ruth reading a selection of her own poetry. The recordings were made this Spring and include introductions to the poems giving insight into the inspiration behind her writing.

Ruth's latest collection of poems 'Above the Forests' (Cinnamon Press), and Matthew Jarvis's critical study 'Ruth Bidgood' (Writers of Wales series, University of Wales Press) were also launched this year, just after Ruth's 90th birthday. Ruth will be reading a few poems and will have some of her books for sale as well as the CD.

"She deserves unequivocal recognition as one of Wales's foremost English-language poets of the last half-century" Matthew Jarvis
