Festivals Main Reading With Fiona Benson And Jay Bernard

Sat 20 Jun | 7-9pm | £8

Fiona Benson’s latest collection Vertigo and Ghost (Jonathan Cape, 2019) won the Forward Prize for Best Collection and the Roehampton Poetry Prize and was shortlisted for the TS Eliot Prize. Her latest work draws on Greek mythology to explore sexual violence, as well as exploring intimate domestic life.

Jay Bernard’s first full-length collection Surge (Chatto & Windus, 2019) is a ground-breaking exploration of the New Cross Fire of 1981 and the more recent tragedy of Grenfell Tower. Bernard’s work is described as ‘breathtakingly brave’ by Jackie Kay and this will be an unmissable reading.
