Tuesday October 23rd 7pm
Nine poets – Tamar Yoseloff, John Canfield, Karen McCarthy Woolf, Shazea Quraishi, Sophie Herxheimer, Rishi Dastidar, Rick Dove, Anne E Cooper and Molly Rowan -discuss and read their poems on an issue that has a wide resonance, exploring how a community shapes and is shaped by those who share its public spaces.
The theme is inspired by the library and by the growing concern from Lambeth’s residents about how the spaces we share are being closed off, privatised and neglected. Each poet has a strong Lambeth connection, and the readings will highlight that the work created here is a product of our community and therefore our shared spaces, and celebrate the deep well of Lambeth talent.
Entry free. Refreshments available.
