American ex-pat writer Tamar will focus on poems from A Formula for Night: New and Selected Poems, plus favourite poems from her back catalogue. Tamar has published five poetry collections, has been nominated for the Ted Hughes Award and is chairman of Poetry & Spoken Word the Society of Authors.
The event is jointly organised by Chichester library and Chichester Poetry and is also the curtain-raiser for the 2018 South Downs Poetry Festival. SDPF director Barry Smith said: “We’re delighted to be able to welcome a writer of Tamar’s stature to the city. Live music from Linda Kelsall-Barnett on classical guitar and open-mic poetry combine to offer a stimulating mix of words and music. Readers and listeners are equally welcome.”
Tickets £7 (to include glass of wine) are available from Chichester Library on 01243 777351.
