Poet, painter, teacher, cook… John Lyons is a man of many talents and seemingly inexhaustible energy. He joins us to celebrate the publication of two contrasting books of verse. A Carib Being in Cymru magically evokes the landscapes and legends of North Wales through a Caribbean sensibility, whilst Dancing in the Rain explodes with all the colour of the Trinidad carnival in a joyous, often humorous, collection that will appeal to readers of all ages. Both volumes overflow with John’s rich generosity of spirit and feature his own delightful illustrations. Join us at the Babylon Gallery, as John brings a splash of tropical vibrancy to the November fens!
