Quote of the Day
Carcanet has always been the place to look for considerations of purely literary and intellectual merit. Its list relies on the vision and the faith and the energy of people who care about books, and values. It is thus as rare as it is invaluable.
Frederic Raphael

Description:

As part of Big Lit festival,  Owen Lowery will be performing Transtitions at Mill On The Fleet. Tickets are £8, and can be bought here. 

Former Judo champion Owen Lowery suffered a spinal injury in 1987, became paralysed from the shoulders down and is now dependent on a ventilator to breathe.  Alongside his own transition from able-bodied sports star to disabled poet, he explores themes of transition from climate change, metamorphosis, evolution and migration seen through the lens of poetry and film.
