To celebrate the launch of our latest book, Kiran Millwood Hargrave’s Splitfish, Gatehouse Press invites you to join us for an evening of poetry reading with special guests including Helen Mort, reading from her debut collection Division Street, and Jaya Savige, reading from his West Australian Premier’s shortlisted collection Surface to Air.
Divided into four strands, Splitfish explores themes of violence, mental illness and, ultimately, recovery and renewal, without recourse to sentimentality. Kiran Millwood Hargrave’s poetry communicates the world in language that is by turns vibrant and strange, ornate and stark. Her third collection, Splitfish is the book where this emerging poet confirms herself as one of the most exciting young voices writing today.
Monday 21st October with doors opening from 6:30pm and reading starting at 7pm.
The Poetry Society, 22 Betterton Street, London, WC2H 9BX
