About the event

‘…here, Bullet/ here is where the world ends, every time.’ Brian Turner served for seven years in the US Army, deployed to Iraq and Bosnia-Herzegovina. Following his first collection Here, Bullet, his new book is Phantom Noise – shortlisted for the TS Eliot Prize. He is joined by Donegal-born poet Matthew Sweeney, reading from The Night Post, a new selection of his poems drawn from five decades of writing. Two masculine, but never macho, poetic voices. Tickets: £9. For more information visit:
