Description

Lives of Letters: A Poetry Reading at the John Rylands

Please join us from 5 pm at the John Rylands Library for a reception and a collection encounter showcasing some of the most interesting letters held in the Special Collections at the University of Manchester Library. The poetry reading will start at 6 pm.

Leontia Flynn has published four collections of poetry with Jonathan Cape.

Winner of the AWB Vincent Literary Award in 2014, her most recent book, The Radio (2017), was described as “an outstanding book from a poet who is not only one of the best writers of her generation but who seems, more and more, to be the voice of that generation.” (The Irish Times) Shortlisted for the T.S. Eliot Prize, it won the Irish Times Poetry Prize.

Zaffar Kunial was born in Birmingham and lives in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire. His first full poetry collection, Us (Faber) was shortlisted for both the TS Eliot and the Costa Prize. He is the 2019 Burgess Fellow at the Centre for New Writing.

This event is in partnership with The Lives of Letters Network.

This event has now SOLD OUT. However, there is a waiting list available.
