A Meeting of the Continents: International Poetry Nigh hosted by Linton Kwesi Johnson

As part of an ongoing series of events celebrating the 50th anniversary of New Beacon Books, join us for an incredible feast of poetry from ten diverse wordsmiths! The evening will be led by the internationally acclaimed Linton Kwesi Johnson and will feature work from the continent of Africa, the Caribbean, Europe, the Middle East, the UK and the USA. Readings and performances ranging from 'the humorous to the darkly gothic...and everything in-between' will be served up at what will surely be an International Poetry Night to remember! The GPI's recent Poet-in-Residence Jay Bernard will be among featured artists. See you there...
