MLF Presents An Evening with Simon Armitage

MLF Presents An Evening with Simon Armitage
Monday 6th March, 7.30pm, The Dancehouse

Manchester Literature Festival is delighted to welcome back one of Britain’s leading poets and playwrights.  A prolific writer, Armitage has published two novels, eleven collections of poetry including Paper Aeroplane: Selected Poems 1989 – 2014, Seeing Stars and Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, and the non-fiction best-sellers All Points North, Walking Home and Walking Away. The Sunday Telegraph described him as ‘that rare beast: a poet whose work is ambitious, accomplished and complex as well as popular.’

Come and join the launch of his much-anticipated new volume of poems, The Unaccompanied. A bold and timely collection, The Unaccompanied is set against a backdrop of social division and economic recession, where mass media, the mass market and globalization has made alienation a commonplace experience and where the solitary imagination drifts and conjures.  Shaped by Armitage’s characteristic wit, insight and empathy, The Unaccompanied documents a world on the brink, where Odysseus stalks the aisles of cut-price supermarkets in search of direction and where the star of Bethlehem rises over industrial Yorkshire.

Doors open at 7pm. Copies of The Unaccompanied will be on sale for £14.99 on the night. Ticket & book options include a discounted copy.

£12 adult ticket / £10 concession
£24 adult ticket & a copy of The Unaccompanied / £22 concession ticket & a copy of The Unaccompanied
