The Hot Press writer will deliver a talk on how they found the Welsh poet through Bob Dylan and The Beatles.
Dylan, Dylan and Me tells Hayden's story of how he discovered the work of Dylan Thomas through music icons such as Bob Dylan and John Lennon, both of whom found Thomas to be a great influence in their work.
His talk will explore the connections and images between Thomas' poetry and the lyrics of Bob Dylan, following Bob Dylan receiving a Nobel Prize for Literature.
An accomplished writer himself, Hayden has penned several books such as My Boy which discusses the life of Phil Lynott. Other titles include Love and Theft? Bob Dylan’s Celtic Odyssey and A Map of Love - Around Wales with Dylan Thomas.
