Poetry with Genevieve Carver and Seni Seneviratne
Thursday 19 October 2023, 18:00 at Millennium Gallery
Based in the Peak District writer Genevieve Carver’s second collection Landsick inverts the idea of seasickness – it’s our lives on land that are unstable, uncertain and often nauseous, while the ocean’s rhythm provides moments of solace, rest or hope. Sri Lankan/English writer Seni Seneviratne’s fourth collection The Go-Away Bird has a connecting thread of birds exploring migratory qualities and caged birds to look at issues including slavery, gender fluidity and the silencing of history.
Landsick – “Deeply funny and very sad at the same time…the ironic and the tender are perfectly fused …” Max Porter
