A special session with T.S. Eliot prize-winner Roger Robinson

Don’t miss out on this rare chance for an intimate audience with poet, musician and activist Roger Robinson, whose most recent collection, A Portable Paradise, won both the 2019 T.S. Eliot Prize and the Royal Society of Literature’s Ondaatje Prize 2020. The collection evokes post-Windrush Britain, interweaving laments for the victims of Grenfell with snapshots of arrivals off the Empire Windrush. Join Roger for a reading from and discussion of these generous and fervent poems.

This event will take place on Zoom.

Please be aware that our Round Table events are limited in capacity and generally sell out quickly.
