Sinéad Morrissey & Douglas Dunn
Monday 9th October, 7.30pm
A pair of our finest contemporary poets read and discuss their work at an event presented in partnership with the Centre for New Writing. Sinéad Morrissey was named the inaugural Belfast Poet Laureate in 2014, and is the author of six collections including There Was Fire in Vancouver, Parallax and Selected Poems. Her new collection On Balance won the 2017 Poetry Book Society Choice Award and explores feats of engineering, questions about family and inheritance, and the impact of a changing climate. Douglas Dunn is the author of ten acclaimed collections, including Elegies (1985 Whitbread Book of The Year), The Donkey’s Ear and New Selected Poems 1964-2000; he also edits many poetry anthologies and writes for television and radio. He will read poems from his new Faber collection The Noise of a Fly.
