Roger McGough: joinedupwriting

An evening of poetry and conversation

Nottingham Poetry Festival and Nottingham Lakeside Arts

Hosted by Henry Normal
Supported by Harminder Nagi and Cleo Asabre-Holt

Roger McGough, one of Britain’s best-lovedpoets, is the author of over seventy books of poetry and editor of numerous anthologies. His exuberant new collection 'joinedupwriting’ ranges from forgotten friendships and the idiosyncrasies of family life to the trauma of war and contemporary global politics. These poems explore the human experience in all its shades of light and dark but always with McGough’s signature wit, irreverence and vivacity. This is the nation’s favourite poet at his finest.

The first half of the evening will feature specially selected Nottingham poets; and following Roger’s readings he will be in conversation with his friend, and Nottingham’s very own, Henry Normal.
