KPF22 Main Reading – Paul Batchelor and Rachel Mann

Literature |
25th June 2022

11am – 1pm | Tickets £5 | Brewery Arts: Theatre

Paul Batchelor will join us to read from his long-awaited second collection Acts of Oblivion (Carcanet, 2022). This is a stunning book, full of poems that contain intense moments of lyricism, balanced with the expansiveness of the novel in their treatment of history and place. Rachel Mann is an Anglican priest and a poet. In her mesmerising debut A Kingdom of Love (Carcanet, 2019) she tackles themes such as the nature of belief, suffering, and love, in a work rich with allusions and full of sensuality.
