Moniza Alvi’s eight collections include The Country at My Shoulder (OUP, 1993) shortlisted for the Whitbread and the T.S. Eliot poetry prizes and At the Time of Partition (Bloodaxe, 2013) also shortlisted for the T.S. Eliot Prize. Her latest collection is Blackbird, Bye Bye, a beautifully tender exploration of the world and our place in it. Roger Robinson will be reading from his fourth collection A Portable Paradise which won the T.S Eliot Prize. His poetry is lyrical, expansive and powerful, ranging far and wide in its themes to encompass family life, the tragedy of Grenfell, history and pop culture.
