Peter Bennet & Sheree Mack Reading this Wednesday
The Lit & Phil, Newcastle upon Tyne
This reading demonstrates the astonishing range and quality of poetry being produced in the North East today. Peter will read ‘Bobby Bendick’s Ride’, a saga of sorcery, murder, and demonic retribution, set in Northumberland and France and featuring a hitherto unknown Border Ballad. After that, the larger part of the evening will be the launch of Sheree’s brilliant and unflinching first full-length collection Family Album, which draws on the complexities and richness of a family history located in Ghana, Barbados, Trinidad and Tyneside. Don’t miss it!
Wednesday 6th July at 7.30pm
This is a free event. You can book a seat by contacting the Lit & Phil on 0191 232 0192 or turn up on the night. Refreshments.
