Sunday 11.00 am – 1.00 pm | Main Reading with Claudine Toutoungi and David Constantine
Castle Green Hotel – Kendal Suite
Claudine Toutoungi’s first collection Smoothie, published by Carcanet in 2017, deserves to be on every possible prize list. This collection is both poignant and funny, tender and exuberant, written with a dry wit and a sharp eye. David Constantine is one of the UK’s best loved poets and has published ten books of poetry, five translations and a novel. His poetry looks outwards, to the European poetic tradition, but with his own unique passionate lyricism. He will be reading from his latest pamphlet, published by Smith/Doorstop. Members of Dove Cottage Young Poets will also perform during this event.
