Virtual Event: An Afternoon of Roald Dahl

Roald Dahl’s books, stories and poems have brought joy to generations of readers, delighting us with their crazy characters, unconventional plots and humorous wordplay.

Be enchanted by some of Dahl’s “Revolting Rhymes” and “Stews”, an excerpt from his autobiography Boy, some tales from his children’s treasure Matilda, and a complete reading of his wonderful story “Mrs Bixby and the Colonel’s Coat”.

Reading at this event will be SMSA Poetry Group members Deb Hunt, Peter Krinks and Peter Rainey.

About the Poetry at SMSA group:

The Poetry at SMSA group is one of SMSA’s regular Members’ Activities & Events that has been running for over 12 years.

Each month, the group meets to discuss poetry relating to a particular theme. They have one rule: you cannot read your own poems.

During COVID-19, the Poetry group are meeting online, and will resume back at a meeting room at SMSA when restrictions ease.

Several times a year, members of the Poetry at SMSA group give public readings of selected poetry, which have proven very popular.
