Local poet and artist Anthea Simmons reads from her book, Pig Nuts & PeacocksIllustrated with Anthea’s line drawings, it is published by Rufus Books at £20.

‘In this hymn to nature and to life, Anthea Simmons introduces us to her rural home, and the creatures she shares it with.  Through the warmest of words, and the author’s own most delightful and delicate line-drawings, we meet herons and hens, bracken and bramble, an apricot fox…  This jewel of a book is both a celebration of the countryside and a finely-crafted exploration of the emotions engendered when we align our hearts to nature.’  – Malachy Doyle

‘If you love poetry and you love the countryside, this is a rare treat.’ – Lucy Daniel Raby
