August Thursday 29th 2019 at the Cinema Museum : Booklaunch and a screening of Peter Greenaway’s The Pillow Book
7pm doors. £8 (£5 concessions)
Im very happy to be launching my new poetry publication at the brilliant Cinema Museum in south London to close out the summer. It's a venue so beautiful to be worth attending alone. The event is further special because it will feature a screening of Peter Greenaway's feature celebration of writing, calligraphy and the body as a living page, The Pillow Book, with Ewan McGregor and Vivian Wu.
The film screening will follow readings from myself and writers like David Spittle, Jonathan Catherall and Yvonne Litschel. The event will further explore the potential of literary and avant-garde poetry to refract and 'translate' popular or arthouse cinema, which is the vague purpose of the book I'll be launching. www.cinemamuseum.org.uk/2019/cinema-and-poetry/
