Harry on Horace; Classical Poetry and Modern Wines - An evening with Harry Eyres


Thursday 4th April 7-9pm
Shrewsbury Branch

Wine journalist, classicist, poet and author, Harry Eyres will be joining us here at Tanners for a reading of his highly acclaimed book: Horace and Me: Life Lessons from an Ancient Poet, to be accompanied by a tasting of three wines, chosen by Harry.

Horace and Me is a true delight. Harry’s extensive classical knowledge and passion combine with his vivid yet characteristically erudite narrative, weaving moments from ancient history together with snapshots of the world that we live in today… and wine, of course, with experience gleaned through a colourful career in wine and journalism spanning over 30 years.

Harry has been a regular columnist for the Financial Times, The Times, Harpers Bazaar, The Spectator and currently writes for Country Life. Harry has also written several books including Beginner’s Guide to Plato’s The Republic; Wine Dynasties of Europe: Personal Portraits of Ten Leading Houses; several books on wine, as well as a volume of poetry, titled Hotel Elisio. He is also the co-author of Johnson’s Brexit Dictionary, a humorous lexicon.

Harry is refreshingly easy-going and a true raconteur: that rare persona that is the Romantic era academic and poet in this increasingly digital age.

This event is being held as a unique talk at Tanners. Please join us for what promises to be a fascinating night of discussion and good wine.
