We’re delighted to have back, by popular demand after last year’s stunning Troubadour reading, former Brooklyn poet-laureate Dennis Nurkse, whose parents fled Nazi Europe during World War II, & who has written on human rights issues, worked with Amnesty International, & published numerous books of poetry with Knopf in the US. Dennis reads from Voices over Water (2011) & A Night in Brooklyn (2012), both with CB Editions in the UK, & discusses writing, roots & relevance (among other things) with CL Dallat.

Plus, before the break, students from University of North Florida: Ash Kemker, Avelina Acosta, Emly Kubacki, Gabriel Bugarin, Teresa ‘T’ Jacobson, Gina Olson, Tiffany Butler, Joseph Lusi, Kim Brown, Kimmie McKibbin, Corrine Schmaltz & Sidney Brooks.
