Welcome to The Live Poetry Book Club, a summer book club exploring and celebrating live readings from black + mixed heritage writers.

For those who love nothing more than reading a good book (ones that move us and inspire us and allow us to see the world differently) and for those who adore listening to a writer bring their work into being through performance, at each of these unique events we will listen to the poet read their work in person, then take their collections home to enjoy afterwards. You can attend a stand alone event or keep coming back for all three.

June 15th features a live set from award winning poet and all round writing queen Vanessa Kisuule and musical performance from the amazing singing storyteller Angeline Morrison, voted No 1 Folk album of the year in The Guardian.

The next live events are at the same time and place: July 13th with Tom Sastry ‘Laureate’s Choice poets, chosen by Carol Ann Duffy’ and August 10th with Pascale Petit, ‘shortlisted for the Forward Prize for Best Collection.’ 11:00-12:30, MMI St Agnes. You can book for these now via the ticket link on this page.

So come one and all, join us at the MMI St Agnes for three very special mornings of language.

Tickets are just £5 and include a free poetry book of the writer’s work and free refreshments.

Concessions available, no questions asked, just reach out
