Rack Poets at the London Irish Centre And in Yorkshire 24 April

Three Rack poets are reading at the London Irish Centre on 24th April with Michael McKimm and Jim Conwell.

Deirdre Shanahan will be reading from her new Rack Press pamphlet, Recovery Position, Róisín Tierney will be reading from her new Arc book The Spanish-Italian Border and Martina Evans will be reading from her forthcoming book from Anvil Burnfort Las Vegas. It will be quite a night.

And if you happen to be in Yorkshire on the same night, Rack poet Ian Parks is reading with others at The Bookcase in Hebden Bridge:

An evening of poetry and music
with poets 
Ian Parks and Atar Hadari
music by Stephen Shulman and guests
Sarah Blood & Nigel Waterhouse

Thursday 24th April
7 – 9 pm
The Book Case
29 Market Street, Hebden Bridge

Atar Hadari’s Songs from Bialik: Selected Poems on H.N. Bialik (Syracuse University Press) was a finalist for the American Literary Translator’s Association Award. His debut poetry collection is Rembrandt’s Bible (Indigo Dreams, 2013) and his Lives of the Dead: Poems of Hanoch Levin, is forthcoming from Arc Publications.

Ian Parks is the only poet to have been published in the Times Literary Supplement and The Morning Star on the same day. He is described by Points North Magazine as 'an heroic figure in Yorkshire poetry and a living legend in Hull'. His collections include Shell Island, The Landing Stage, Love Poems 1979-2009, and The Exile's House. The Cavafy Variations was a Poetry Book Society Choice.

Steven Shulman is a violinist and composer, a member of The Orchestra of Opera North and founder member of The Frailach Spielers Klezmer Band. Nigel Waterhouse has worked as an accordion soloist with the BBC Symphony and with Opera North, and with the soprano Sarah Blood (Opera North Chorus), will be performing Stephen’s setting of Sylvia Plath’s ’Wuthering Heights’.
