The Poetry Society and Faber Members present a rare opportunity to hear the acclaimed American poet Nick Flynn reading his work. Appearing alongside Vahni Capildeo, winner of the 2016 Forward Prize for Best Collection, and Faber New Poet Rachael Allen, this is sure to be a mesmerising and unmissable evening of poetry.

"I read Nick Flynn’s poetry to feel alive." – Marie Howe

“Read [Nick Flynn] and be filled with awe, sorrow and gratitude for this poet’s gifts and spiritual courage.” – Carolyn Forché

"In lyrics of ringing clarity and strange precision, Flynn conjures a will to survive, the buoyant motion towards love which is sometimes all that saves us." – Mark Doty
