Lisa Kelly & John Greening: Poetry in Aldeburgh

Saturday 9 Nov 2019, 10:00 to 11:00

Jubilee Hall
Crabbe Street
IP15 5BN


John Greening & Lisa Kelly will read at 'The Europeans - British, Danish & Dutch Poets'.

John Greening reads his poem after the Finnish composer Sibelius, from his new collection, The Silence. In his second collection, The Europeans, David Clarke, Professor of German Studies by day, reads poems that capture a schoolboy fascination with Europe on exchange trips across the Channel. In Bookmarks, D A Prince reads poems inspired by the tickets and receipts she used to mark the page, taking us on travels in food and time. Half-Danish and half-deaf, Lisa Kelly, Chair of Magma Poetry, launches her debut collection A Map Towards Fluency with formally astute poems where she asks, how Danish can she be when she cannot hear her mother's tongue with understanding? Amsterdam-based poet, Hagar Peeters, reads poems from her new collection, her participation is sponsored by New Dutch Literature.

Tickets are £10 and can be booked here.
