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

Books will be on sale at the event. Books can be ordered online from La Biblioteka – Off the Shelf book store
