Hallowell, Maine -- Next month the Harlow Gallery in Hallowell is delighted to welcome back English-poet-living-in-Wales, William Ayot for a poetry reading on Friday, September 13 at 7pm at the gallery, located at 160 Water Street in Hallowell. One year ago William's impromptu reading from his latest book, E-Mail From the Soul, entertained and moved a committed audience of die-hard poetry lovers at the Harlow. This year Ayot returns having won the UK's People's Book Prize, Special Achievement Award,for a book that is having an effect in the community in this case the community of leaders.

William's powerful and accessible poetry speaks directly to the heart as he charts an underworld journey through loss and alienation, to self-acceptance, reconciliation and a sense of belonging. A one-time student of indigenous shamans, William brings a grounded reality and a big heart to poems about the struggles and sacrifices of work, relationship and self-discovery about growing down as well as growing up!
