I’m going to the Man Booker at Birkbeck with Hilary Mantel on Monday and happened to come across this amazing painting in the British Library. Serendipity!
Come out for a night of poetry at the Duke of Wellington Pub in Dalston. The Birkbeck Poets host our fourth event Sunday, 23 November, at this wonderful pub. Readings start at 7pm. Join us for a pint (or a glass of wine) and an intimate night with poets in East London. Details here.
