Literary Themed Horse Ride
Dr Kate North and Porthcawl based writer Tom Anderson led a literary themed horse ride, in association with Literature Wales as part of their 2013 Literary Tourism series of events. Kate and Tom crossed the River Ogmore to explore the Merthyr Mawr sand dunes on horseback. Kate delivered talks on the concept of literary tourism and acclaimed writer Dannie Abse's time in Ogmore. Tom Anderson spoke about the sea and sense of place in his own writing. To mark his 90th year, the afternoon finished with an intimate reading and a Q&A session with Dannie Abse at the stunningly located Glamorgan Heritage Coast Centre. Kate introduced Dannie who read from his recent poetry collection and there was a lively Q&A session after.
