Speaker: Lavinia Greenlaw, Marie Howe

Alongside her exquisite poetry, Lavinia Greenlaw has written opera libretti, radio dramas and essays on art. Now she brings her interest in perception, thought and experience to an absorbing and enigmatic new collection of poems, The Casual Perfect. She is joined today by the celebrated American writer Marie Howe, whose poems can be breathtaking and heartbreaking in equal measure. This is a rare opportunity to hear this astonishingly perceptive writer reading her work. Free coffee, courtesy of Heritage Portfolio.
