Publicity material for this event says:

George Szirtes, distinguished translator and poet, came here from Hungary as a refugee at the age of eight. Reel won the 2004 T.S.Eliot prize. His most recent collections are How to be a Tiger, for children, and Mapping the Delta (Bloodaxe). David Harsent is reading from his latest book, Salt (Faber). His previous collection, Firesongs, won the 2014 T.S.Eliot Prize. ‘It is hard to think of any poet working in this country today who is so demanding both of himself and of the reader; harder still to think of one who is as morally and imaginatively rewarding’ - John Burnside.
