Moira Andrew reads and signs ‘Breakfast with Swallows’ at Bookshop
Scotland born and educated Moira Andrew’s first love was writing poetry for adults and currently living in Somerset she devotes herself to this. She was a lecturer in education at a College and part-time tutor in Creative Writing at a University. Now a full-time writer and poet-in-schools, Moira has been writing and publishing poetry since the 1980s. Much of her work has been for children and teachers.   Moira Andrew's poems are funny, quirky and fresh. They offer shrewd observations of older generations with profound insight into the strangest regions of our own lives. There are poems which paint landscapes of intense colour and fierce heat, brought together in "Breakfast with Swallows". Having an unusual gift of being able to write about everyday life and making it special. Listeners’ faces light up with recognition when she touches on something that illuminates their own experiences. But she goes well beyond the everyday when she writes about her love of birds, flowers and the nature that surrounds us.   What’s better than being at a book shop and being joined by the author herself as she reads and signs the book which itself is a feast.
