Faber New PoetsSophie Collins, Zaffar Kunial, Richard Scott & Hannah Sullivan
Saturday 13th October, 3pm
International Anthony Burgess Foundation
Four poets. Four different takes on the world. Four exciting debut collections. In Who Is Mary Sue?, Sophie Collins considers the politics behind the way writing by women is received – the presumption that everything is autobiographical. Zaffar Kunial’s Us looks at his upbringing by an English mother and a Kashmiri father, and the distances his own life has had to travel. Richard Scott takes us on a tour of love, shame and Soho, examining how trauma becomes part of the language we use. While Hannah Sullivan’s Three Poems are studies of innocence lost, birth, and grief on both sides of the Atlantic. Join us to hear these major new voices perform their work. Introduced by John McAuliffe.
