The Power of Poetry: Words to Heal and Inspire
Join us for an evening of poetry and inspiration with William Sieghart, the acclaimed author of the bestselling Poetry Pharmacy books. Sieghart’s books have become a sensation, offering readers a prescription of verse to soothe, inspire and revive. At Intelligence Squared, we have had the privilege of hosting Sieghart before, along with stellar guests including Jeanette Winterson, Helena Bonham Carter and Dominic West.
Now we’re delighted to welcome Sieghart back for the launch of his final volume in the series, The Poetry Pharmacy Forever: New Prescriptions to Soothe, Revive and Inspire. Joining him in conversation will be BBC broadcaster Sarah Montague. Together they will explore the poems in the new book, each one expertly matched to tackle specific problems we all face, whether it’s coping with grief, environmental despair, or burnout. Alongside the discussion, actors will perform the poems, bringing their emotional resonance to life and connecting us all as fellow human beings.
In a world that has been through tumultuous times, poetry can be a beacon of hope, a reminder of our shared humanity, and a powerful tool for healing. Come to the Tabernacle in Notting Hill on December 5 for an unforgettable evening and discover the poems that can help you to heal, connect, and thrive.
