Quote of the Day
I'm filled with admiration for what you've achieved, and particularly for the hard work and the 'cottage industry' aspect of it.

Rachel Mann & Roz Kaveney: London

Wednesday 18 Mar 2020, 19:00 to 20:30

5 Caledonian Road
N1 9DX


This event has been cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak. Please accept our apologies.

We are very excited to announce a poetry event at Housmans in collaboration with Carcanet Press, one of the outstanding independent literary publishers of classical and modern poetry of our time.

Anglican priest, poet, writer and broadcaster Rachel Mann will be reading from her highly praised A Kingdom of Love, a lyrical interrogation of the place of the sacred and profane in a demythologised world. Whilst framed within the language of Christianity, Mann interrogates the dominant linguistic and mythic inheritances of religious discourse. Furthermore, she writes of connection and of faith in a way that will resonate with non-religious readers. A meditation also on the spiritual vs. the material, Mann eschews didacticism in A Kingdom of Love and urges us through her verses to reflect on the ways in which we can connect with one another and move forward in these difficult times.
After a reading from A Kingdom of Love, Rachel will be in conversation with writer, critic, and poet the brilliant Roz Kaveney about all things sacred and profane.

Tickets are Standard £3 (value redeemable against purchase), Unwaged £1 (value redeemable against purchase) and Solidarity £5. Housmans Bookshop is a not-for-profit organisation. Your support is greatly appreciated. Buy tickets here.
