Poetry Book Society Benefit Reading
|Dates:||4 November 2011|
|Times:||18:30 - 18:30|
|What is it:||Literature Live|
|Organiser:||Martin Harris Centre|
This reading in is an opportunity to show support for the PBS who have lost their ACE grant and appreciate the strength of Northern poetry.
The reading also draws attention to the North as disproportionately affected by ACE cuts, with half the pot overall going to London. The PBS has consistently recognised Northern poetry’s strength in their book club choices, recommendations, and T.S. Eliot Prize shortlists.
Participants include: Simon Armitage, Sean O’Brien, Ian Duhig, Bill Herbert, Vona Groarke, John McAuliffe, Jake Polley, Paul Farley, David Morley, Jean Sprackland, Julian Turner, Rommi Smith, Michael Symmons Roberts, Deryn Rees-Jones, Jeffrey Wainwright and Amanda Dalton.
The Manchester PBS benefit is a collaboration between the PBS, the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester, The Writing School at MMU and the Centre for New Writing at The University of Manchester.
