NATIONAL POETRY LIBRARY: Celebrating Shearsman Books

Date: Wednesday 5 July 2017
Time: 8pm
Price: Free but booking required
Venue: The National Poetry Library, Royal Festival Hall. Southbank Centre

Shearsman Books have been a driving force in British modernist poetry for 35 years. Their global list has championed the work of some of Britain's most important, and often overlooked, modern poets. 

With a reputation for exploration and considered experiment, Shearsman has provided a prolific and invaluable contribution to our understanding of what poetry might be. 

SJ Fowler, Elisabeth Bletsoe, Siriol Troup and Peter Riley, authors from across the generations that Shearsman represents, will read their work before a discussion between them and Shearsman editor Tony Frazer.
