Virginia Astley In Conversation at Rough Trade East
August 7, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us at Rough Trade East for a very special evening with writer and poet Virginia Astley in conversation with poet Will Burns. Virginia will be discussing and reading from her latest book The English River, published by Bloodaxe books.
Will was born in London and raised in Buckinghamshire. He didn’t finish his English degree, choosing instead to start an ill-fated band with his brother. He has worked in factories, cleaning windows, painting houses and the best record shop on earth. He likes sports and ornithology and is Poet-In-Residence at Caught By The River.
He was named as one of the 4 Faber & Faber New Poets for 2014 with his pamphlet in that series published in October 2014.
