Carcanet Press is one of the UK’s leading publishers of poetry, and is now in its fiftieth year. We celebrate with readings by four Nottingham-based Carcanet poets, three of whom are closely related to NTU. A free limited-edition pamphlet of their poems will be available to attendees on the night – and all of their books will of course be available too.

Support: TBC

The Sheffield-born author, until recently a resident of Los Angeles, talks about his seventeen idiosyncratically satirical novels, from Street Sleeper through to the recent The Miranda, whose subject matter – a man who walks a thousand miles in his back yard – links to his best known non-fiction, Walking in Ruins and The Lost Art of Walking. He will also read from and discuss all of these works. Free, but please book by calling or emailing Five Leaves bookshop.
