Event description

Description

Hercules Editions invites you to the launch of Helen Mort's latest chapbook, The Singing Glacier.

In August 2016, Helen, along with composer William Carslake and filmmaker Richard Jones, travelled to southeastern Greenland to cross the remote glaciers and climb mountains near Sermiligaaq Fjord. Their responses formed a unique performance with original music, poetry and film footage. The Singing Glacier documents their journey in book form, including the whole of the poem sequence, portions of the musical score, and photographs from their climb. Included in the book is a conversation between Mort and Carslake, and an afterward by the literary geographer David Cooper, Senior Lecturer at Manchester Metropolitan University. ​

Helen will be reading the whole of the sequence at the event. Readings begin at 19:30.
