Poets Lauren Bolger and James Sheard read from their work in an event organised in partnership with Keele University.
Lauren Bolger’s debut pamphlet Lucy’s Evening is the 2012 winner of the Roy Fisher Prize for Poetry, endowed by the Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy. James Sheard is an award-winning writer whose collections include Scattering Eva (Cape, 2005) and Dammtor (Cape, 2010), and whose writing has been described as ‘ambitious and exhilarating … James Sheard can manage both scale and intimacy, governed by a fine ear, in language both rich and chaste. He is also something of a rarity – a manifestly European poet working in English. Not to be missed.’ – Sean O’Brien
