A live poetry reading by Imtiaz Dharker - from Warwickshire Libraries and Poetry on Loan, but available online anywhere!
Join us for an evening of poetry with award-winning poet, Imtiaz Dharker, live (virtually) in your living room
We are thrilled to welcome award-winning poet Imtiaz Dharker, for an evening of poetry, live virtually in your living room (or conservatory, kitchen, den – wherever’s most comfortable!). Imtiaz will be reading from her works, sharing her thoughts about poetry and answering your questions.
Imtiaz is a poet, artist and video filmmaker. She was awarded the Queen’s Gold Medal for Poetry in 2014. She received the Cholmondeley Award and an Honorary Doctorate from SOAS and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature. In 2020 she became the Chancellor of Newcastle University.
The evening will open with a short reading by the Warwickshire Libraries Young Poet Laureate, Ruby Murphy.
This event will be presented as a Microsoft Teams Live Event. You will be able to view our speakers on your screen and you can use the Q&A function to type your questions. Library staff hosting the event will then read these out for Imtiaz to answer.
Alternatively, you can email questions before the event to firstname.lastname@example.org (please specify if you would like your name included when your question is read out or whether you would prefer this to be anonymous).
Tickets are £3; you only need one ticket per household. You can get your tickets on Eventbrite here
Please note - we welcome audience members from throughout the West Midlands and beyond!
