ACCLAIMED artist Emily Maguire is presenting an evening of poetry and songs at The Book Shop in Bridport on Monday, November 12 at 7pm.

The evening will celebrate the launch of Emily's third book Meditation Mind.

Singer, songwriter, poet, composer, multi-instrumentalist and mental health advocate, Emily's five albums and three books have established her as truly a talent to be reckoned with.

With a remarkable, inspiring story to tell, she has been featured many times on Radio 2 and Radio 4, her heartfelt, thought-provoking lyrics, supremely expressive vocals and spellbinding live performances winning her fans across the globe.

Described as ‘exhilarating and transformational’ (RnR Magazine), Emily’s songs have the power to uplift, comfort and inspire in equal measure. Her new book Meditation Mind is a collection of poems inspired by her Buddhist practice.

The gig in Bridport is part of a UK book tour and will be a mix of poetry readings and acoustic songs on guitar accompanied by Emily's husband Christian Dunham on double-bass.

Emily will hold a short Q&A following the performance. Tickets are £5, available through Emily's website at
