Poems for the Planet (Poetry Evening)

Tuesday 7 April @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Poems for the Planet

Two locally based poets with growing national reputations, Michael Brown and André Mangeot, will be reading from and discussing their work.

About this Event

Michael will be reading from his third collection, Meet Me at the Harbour, which explores our coast on the frontline of climate change. Michael covers pollution, rising sea levels and the next generation in his verse. He will also be talking about his upcoming environmental short novel The Cage about a group of humans trying to escape an alien zoo.

André will focus mainly on his recently published third collection, Blood Rain, that examines some of the most pressing challenges we and the planet now face, but will also read an extract from his earlier books of short stories. There will be opportunities for questions and open discussion during the evening.

The event is free to current members of FMRL and £3 per person to non-members, payable on the door.

Please RSVP via Eventbrite
