Overton Poetry Prize Book Launch

About this event

Every year, the winner of the prestigious Overton Poetry Prize has a collection of their work published by the university's own Lamplight Press as part of their award - an achievement we love to celebrate!

So we are excited to announce an event to mark the official launch of 'Lampshades & Glass Rivers' by 2015 winner S. A. Leavesley - an evening of refreshments and live poetry readings for all to enjoy. We will be hearing from, among others, our Poet-in-Residence Helen Calcutt, as well as works from the new publication read by the author herself.

This event is FREE to attend and no advance booking is required. It's sure to be a fantastic evening, so we very much hope to see you there!
