Radna Fabias and Kim Moore: Ways of Seeing at Manchester Poetry Library, Manchester 30 June 2022 Entrance is free — Visit now

Dutch-Antillean poet Radna Fabias joins Kim Moore to read from their latest work at this special event at Manchester Poetry Library, subtitled Ways of Seeing.

Part of New Dutch Writing, supported by the Dutch Foundation for Literature, Radna Fabias will be reading from debut collection Habitus, newly translated into English by David Colmer. Fabias captures life on Curaçao in montage-like depictions, with the poet’s eye facing away from the self and stylistically echoing the mood of American Beat.

Joining her is Kim Moore is co-director of Kendal Poetry Festival and winner of the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize. The poems in her second collection, All The Men I Never Married – just announced as shortlisted for the Forward Prize – are described as “searing, musical reckonings on men and the male dominated society we inhabit. They are poems which are both empathetic and revolutionary.”

Manchester Poetry Library is rolling out the events – poet André Naffis-Sahely launches his new collection on Tuesday 28 June.
