Sheltering Under the Owl’s Wings: Welcoming Others to Leeds
This event is hosted by Dr Emily Zobel Marshall from the School of Cultural Studies & Humanities for Remember Oluwale as part of Leeds Literature Festival 2019.
Leeds’ own tradition in poetry and literature was augmented by its new communities, a continuing process reflected in several recent anthologies such as ‘Remembering Oluwale’, ‘Any Change? Poetry in a Hostile Environment’ and ‘The Trojan Donkey’. Contributors to these range from all over the world, from well-known poets to refugees, and a number will read at this special event, with copies of the anthologies on sale afterwards. Performances from Teresa O’Driscoll, Chérie Taylor Baptiste, Ian Duhig, Halima France-Mir, Sai Murray, Ian Harker and others, including Leeds Beckett Creative Writing students.
