Sat 29 April 2017, 11:00 – 12:30 BST
Our reading group where we read and explore poems by a well-known poet – no previous knowledge or experience necessary! This session is devoted to Shara McCallum. Please note: the poet will not be there in person, only through her poetry. The session is led by poet Kate Hendry.
Shara McCallum was born in 1972 in Jamaica to Afro-Jamaican and Venezuelan parents and moved to the U.S. at the age of nine. Her books of poetry include Song of Thieves (University of Pittsburgh Press, 2003) and The Water Between Us (1999), winner of the 1998 Agnes Lynch Starrett Prize.
