The seventh Season Salon will celebrate the Celtic fire festival of Samhain, Calan Gaeaf - the herald of winter - in Welsh, or Hallowe'en to many. This is the festival to mark death as part of the cycle of life. Mike will be joined by Manon Steffan Ros, the musician and author, whose apocalyptic classic Llyfr Glas Nebo won every award going and is soon to be published in English as The Blue Book of Nebo. Also appearing is Simon Moreton, writer, artist and zine maker, whose debut book WHERE? is a thrilling, multi-media evocation of memory, loss and love in the Clee Hills of Shropshire. We'll also celebrate those we lost this year, including Mike’s great mentor and hero, Jan Morris.
