For the second Season Salon, author and broadcaster Mike Parker will be marking the Spring Equinox, that briefest of pauses in the rapidly accelerating year, that split second when night and day stand equal. Mike will be joined by Niall Griffiths, author of numerous cult novels, to celebrate Under Milk Wood, spring’s most exuberant text, and hear an exclusive first as Niall reads from a new work set on the “one spring day” of the equinox itself. Artist Fern Smith will take us dancing at sunrise on Cadair Idris, to the soundtrack of Patti Smith, and inspired by a section of Mike’s On the Red Hill, we’ll explore the dark and difficult sides of spring.
