Jennifer Williams, Ben Wilkinson, and Andre Naffis-Sahely

Saturday 7th May, 4-5pm

Northern Stage


These poets celebrate the human voice amidst political, environmental and personal change. In High Desert (Bloodaxe), André Naffis-Sahely reflects on class, race, and nationalism within the American Southwest, in extraordinary poems of witness and vision; Jennifer Williams’ new collection, Origins (Shearsman), is a song of light and breath telling the story of a baby born in a time of pandemic; and in Same Difference (Seren), Ben Wilkinson asks who’s doing the talking in poems that unpick the preconceptions and prejudices that inform our experience of the world.
