Join four of Northern Ireland’s leading poets as they read from their latest collections.
Ruth Carr’s Feather and Bone is a personal response to two remarkable women: Mary Ann McCracken and Dorothy Wordsworth. Maureen Boyle’s The Work of a Winter contains poems written over sixteen years. They are often narrative and many attempt to give voice to women and men whose voices we haven’t been often able to hear reflecting the idea that poetry can give intimate imaginative access to people’s lives.
Medbh McGuckian’s Love, the Magician, is a collection in which, ‘The human and the animal go hand-in-hand . . . as do the domestic and the intimate, whilst Maria McManus’ Available Light is a book about birds, but not in the way you might immediately imagine.
