Friday Night Reading: Louisa Adjoa Parker and Alan Jenkins
October 18: 7:45 pm - 9:00 pm£10.00
Alan Jenkins was born in Surrey in 1955 and brought up in London. He studied at the University of Sussex and has worked for the Times Literary Supplement since 1981, as poetry and fiction editor, then deputy editor. He is a poet of great skill who likes to go sailing, and loads his ‘little craft of words’ with intense feelings – sexual jealousy, romantic regret, elegiac contemplation, and grief.
Louisa Adjoa Parker is of Ghanaian and English heritage, and has lived in the South West of England for most of her life. She writes poetry, fiction, BAME history and articles on gender and race. She has been shortlisted by the Bridport Prize and the Live Canon Competition and highly commended by the Forward Prize.
