The Oranges of Revolution – In Dialogue
… with a top line-up of socially and politically engaged poets: Niall McDevitt – Wendy French – Nnorom Azuonye – Agnes Meadows – Talha Ahsan – Pauline Seawards – Chip Grim – Murray Shelmerdine
Following the launch of my second collection, The Oranges of Revolution (Smokestack Books), I’m inviting half a dozen socially & politically engaged poets to share in the discussion and explore the notion of change in its many diverse forms – on both a domestic and international level. From the Arab Spring to the UK riots of 2011, global austerity measures and beyond, the event aims to create space for expanding and deepening dialogue.
The evening offers a dynamic variety of thought, themes, literary voice and music. And the best part: it’s happening on a Saturday – The Fourth of July, of all days! So come and experience some some top-class, thought-provoking literature in the beautiful setting of Keats House, enjoy a glass of wine with your friends, exchange ideas with the poets or the person sat next to you, and make yourselves at home!
Featuring poets – Wendy French and Niall McDevitt
Writer & Lyricist – Murray Shelmerdine
Readings from – Nnorom Azuonye – Agnes Meadows – Talha Ahsan – Pauline Seawards – Chip Grim
