Billing itself as an organisation for the intellectually astute, Intelligence Squared run events covering culture, politics, economics, society – and this one on poetry. The Power of Poetry will see William Sieghart and Jeanette Winterson discussing the art form and its power to connect and communicate all aspects of life. Sharing the creation of his bestselling book, The Poetry Pharmacy: Tried-and-True Prescriptions for the Heart, Mind and Soul Sieghart will be speaking about the personal and profound when it comes to the words that matter to him. Bringing the poems to life will be a cast of star actors including Helena Bonham Carter, Sue Perkins, Jason Isaacs and Tom Burke. Words matter – however intelligent you think you are.
