Book of Days, her second full-length work from Carcanet Press, is a long poem in response to the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage. Readings and Q+A from the poets will be followed by refreshments.
Phoebe Power is the author of Shrines of Upper Austria (Carcanet, 2018), which received the Forward Prize for Best First Collection. She is currently lecturing in Creative Writing at York St John.

Caleb Klaces' most recent books are the poetry collection Away From Me and Fatherhood, a novel, both published by Prototype. He is a Senior Lecturer in Creative Writing at York St John.
