Dates and times

8 Mar 2019 6pm

Show Map

Broadcasting Place

2nd floor , School of Cultural Studies, Leeds Beckett University, Leeds, LS2 9EN

As part of Leeds Lit Fest 2019

Leeds’ own tradition in poetry and literature was augmented by its new communities, a continuing process reflected in several recent anthologies such as ‘Remembering Oluwale’, ‘Any Change? Poetry in a Hostile Environment’ and ‘The Trojan Donkey’. Contributors to these range from all over the world, from well-known poets to refugees, and a number will read at this special event, with copies of the anthologies on sale afterwards. Performances from Teresa O’Driscoll, Chérie Taylor Baptiste, Ian Duhig, Halima France-Mir, Sai Murray, Ian Harker and others, including LBU Creative Writing students. Hosted by Dr Emily Zobel Marshall.
