In collaboration with Book Club Bunch we are excited to announce our next poetry pop up! Join us as we delve into literary works and enjoy masterpieces read out loud by amazing actors!
In March we will dedicate our event to Women and Femininity and examine these poems:
- In The Person of Womankind, Ben Jonson
- In an Artists Studio, Christina Rossetti
- Phenomenal Woman, Maya Angelou
- The Woman the Boy Became, Kate Tempest
This range of poetry from the 1600s to the present day considers what it is to be a woman; the false representation of women by men; the celebration of female character beyond the collective expectation; and the idea of traversing gender.
Unlike other book clubs that expect participants to read in advance and prepare for the conversation, we welcome anyone to join the meetings without any preparation. You just have to be there and enjoy the finest works of poetry, read aloud by professional actors and English literature scholars. We will also allow sufficient time to discuss every poem in a group and reflect on how the ideas and emotions are emphasised by the power of language.
We are sorry! This event has ended. You can book your place at one of our upcoming events:
