100 in stock
Join us for a special evening of poetry with photographs as UK Poet Laureate Simon Armitage reads live on stage from Magnetic Field, his recent collection inspired by the West Yorkshire village where he grew up and began life as a writer. Includes audience Q&A and book signing afterwards.The poems in Magnetic Field range from the night-time view from Armitage’s bedroom window to the clockwork comings and goings in the village; the vastness of the surrounding moors always at his shoulder. Magnetic Field invites questions about the forging of identity, the precariousness of memory and the forces places can exert decades on.
