Sunday Night Headline Event: Zaffar Kunial, Gregory Leadbetter, Jenny Mitchell
February 19th @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm£4.50 – £6.50
Our final headline event of the weekend brings three wonderful poets together to read and talk about their work. Birmingham born Zaffar Kunial’s second collection England’s Green (Faber, 2022) has been short-listed for the TS Eliot Prize and follows his prize-winning debut collection Us (Faber, 2018). Brummie resident Gregory Leadbetter’s second collection, Maskwork (Nine Arches, 2020) was longlisted for the Laurel Prize and follows this astonishing debut The Fetch (Nine Arches, 2016). Jenny Mitchell’s prize-winning first two collections, Her Lost Language (Indigo Dreams, 2019) and Map of a Plantation (Indigo Dreams, 2021) have recently been followed by a third, Resurrection of a Blackman (indigo Dreams, 2022). This amazing line-up, a real treat, will be hosted for us by Jonathan Davidson from Writing West Midlands and founder of Birmingham Literature Festival.
