Description

Join us and Jill Abram to present an evening of poetry and conversation to celebrate the launch of Mimi's newest collection 'Afterwardness', with special guest Kei Miller who recently published 'In Nearby Bushes'.


'Afterwardness' by Mimi Khalvati is the Poetry Book Society Winter Wild Card and her ninth collection to be published by Carcanet. She is known as the queen of form, famed for adapting the ghazal to English use, and in this book she puts the Petrarchan sonnet to striking, unfamiliar use, widening the possibilities of the form.
'These poems are playful, moving and brimming with a fierce intelligence, and in this collection Mimi Khalvati is writing at the very height of her lyric power'- Hannah Lowe.


Kei Miller is a poet, novelist, essayist, short story writer and broadcaster. In 2014 he won the Forward Prize for Best Poetry Collection and was named one of the Next Generation Poets. 'In Nearby Bushes' was published in August and selected as The Telegraph’s Book of the Month.
'Anyone who loves language will find it utterly intoxicating'- Roger Cox, The Scotsman.
Kei Miller is provided by Renaissance One.

Jill Abram is a poet, presenter and producer. She is Director of the influential collective Malika’s Poetry Kitchen, and created the Stablemates series of poetry and conversation. 'Jill Abram knows her stuff'- Greg Freeman, Write Out Loud.

Carcanet Press is celebrating its 50th year of publishing the most comprehensive and diverse list of modern and classic poetry in English and in translation.

Doors 6:30pm for 7pm start.
