Literature Live: Vona Groarke and Katherine Angel

30 Jan 2017

On Monday 6 February, 7.30pm, at the Martin Harris Centre

Vona Groarke and Katherine Angel

Vona Groarke has published seven collections of poetry, most recently, Selected Poems (Gallery Press, 2016). Current editor of Poetry Ireland Review and a selector for the Poetry Book Society, she is a Senior Lecturer in Creative Writing at The University of Manchester.

The event is a launch of Four Sides Full, a personal essay. Vona’s collections to date have all displayed a fascination with the visual arts, but Four Sides Full takes a different approach. In considering frames and what they bring to an artwork, it reflects on themes of containment, the body and identity, and how a life can flit between.

Katherine Angel is the author of Unmastered: A Book On Desire, Most Difficult To Tell (Penguin; Farrar, Straus & Giroux). She is currently completing a book on personhood and subjectivity in sex research, and she collaborates with performance group The Blackburn Company on a live art reading, Unmastered Remastered.

This event will be hosted by Kaye Mitchell, co-director of the Centre for New Writing at The University of Manchester and is presented in partnership with The Real Story.
