In 2021 we are inviting you to spend an evening in with some great literature and authors in a series of events as part of Sefton Borough of Culture.
Kei Miller is a Jamaican poet, novelist, short story writer and essayist, with four collections of poems published. His wonderful readings bring out the musical quality of his poems. He will be joining us live to read from and talk about poems from his last two books The Cartographer Tries to Map a Way to Zion, which looks at how places exist as much in the imagination as in their landscapes, and in nearby bushes which continues his evocations of contemporary Jamaica.
Hosted on Zoom, for the first part of the session you'll be broken up into small break-out groups to spend an hour taking a deep dive close Shared Reading of an extract from the text guided by a Reader Leader.
Then, following a short break, we'll come back together and be joined by Kei Miler for a live reading and the opportunity to take part in a Q&A hosted by Andrew Forster, our Shared Reading projects manager at The Reader.
