Green Noise and Gravestones: A Reading of Poetry and Prose at MMU Geoffrey Manton Building, Manchester, 5 March 2018, free entry - Visit now

Award-winning poet and author Professor Jean Sprackland will read new poetry and prose from two forthcoming books: Green Noise, a collection of poems, and These Silent Mansions, a collection of essays about graveyards, so you could say she’s working the graveyard shift for this event. Jean will talk about some of the themes and preoccupations – place, memory, time and loss – at the heart of both books, and those other writers who have inspired and influenced her own work. This lecture will be introduced by Man Met’s Pro Vice Chancellor for Education Professor Helen Laville and it will be followed with a response from James Sheard, poet and Senior Lecturer in Creative Writing at Keele.

 

Tickets free, but booking via Eventbrite advised.
