The Other Room: Charles Berstein, Susan Bee, and Maggie O’Sullivan at Castle Hotel, Manchester, 3 October 2016, free entry - Visit now

The live literature scene in Manchester is not only huge, it’s constantly growing, and there ain’t nothing like local, home-grown fertiliser, but, hey! Nothing, either, like a bit of outside input to mulch our roses. Now, if you don’t know about them already, The Other Room – courtesy ace writers themselves James Davies, Tom Jenks and Scott Thurston – are brilliant at bringing in folk from far and wide.

This month, we’re treated to two guests from over the pond, and another widely published, so we’re proper on it. Charles Bernstein is a poet, essayist, editor and critic. Collaborator Susan Bee is an artist from Brooklyn. Maggie O’Sullivan has been making and performing her work internationally since the mid 1970s and The Salt Companion to Maggie O’Sullivan collects essays by contemporaries on her work. If experimental is your bag, get to it. Can’t promise, but this night often delivers on musicscapes, live art and dada. Oh, and poetry. Obvs.
