Event description
Join us to celebrate new books by acclaimed York St John poets: 'Away from Me' by Caleb Klaces and 'Book of Days' by Phoebe Power.

About this event

Caleb Klaces’s highly anticipated second collection has been described as an ingenious set of ‘explorations of subjectivity, language, reality and the mind’ (Poetry Review), and was one of the The White Review’s 2021 Books of the Year. Award-winning poet Phoebe Power has been described as ‘an utterly contemporary voice’ (Bidisha). Book of Days, her second full-length work from Carcanet Press, is a long poem in response to the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage. Readings and Q+A from the poets will be followed by refreshments.

Phoebe Power is the author of Shrines of Upper Austria (Carcanet, 2018), which received the Forward Prize for Best First Collection. She is currently lecturing in Creative Writing at York St John.

Caleb Klaces’ most recent books are the poetry collection Away From Me and Fatherhood, a novel, both published by Prototype. He is a Senior Lecturer in Creative Writing at York St John.
