Literature Live: Vona Groarke and Katherine Angel

We’re delighted to be presenting this event on Monday 6 February in partnership with the Centre for New Writing at The University of Manchester, hosted by its co-director, Kaye Mitchell.
 
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.
