Description

Join us for our fourth Read Regional event in Liverpool Central Library where Clare Shaw will be reading from Flood, followed by a Q&A.

Clare Shaw was born in Burnley. She has three poetry collections from Bloodaxe: Straight Ahead (2006), which attracted a Forward Prize Highly Commended for Best Single Poem; and Head On (2012), which is, according to the Times Literary Supplement, ‘fierce … memorable and visceral’. Her third collection, Flood, was published in June 2018. She is a Royal Literary Fellow, and a regular tutor for the Writing Project, the Poetry School, the Wordsworth Trust and the Arvon Foundation. She also works as a mental health trainer and consultant.

Read Regional is a celebration of brilliant new books from the North of England, which connect authors with readers in their local libraries. Founded by New Writing North in 2008 the campaign is funded by Arts Council England and is now produced in partnership with Liverpool Libraries and 22 other library authorities.

There are twelve titles on this year’s campaign, offering a broad selection including poetry, children’s books, nature writing, fiction and crime. Copies of all twelve titles are now available to borrow from Hull libraries, and reading guides to each book can be downloaded from the Read Regional website
