Poetry from Ruth Shelton and Matthew Caley
Date(s) - Wednesday, 6th November
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Five Leaves Bookshop
A warm welcome back to Bloodaxe poet Matthew Caley, who will be reading from Trawlerman’s Turquoise, his sixth collection, which features various seemingly recherché elements – telepathy, Madame Blavatsky, epistolary novels, muse worship, Balzac’s coffee addiction and Thomas Merton’s accidental electrocution amongst them – not always as straightforward ‘subject matter’, but caught up in the backdraft of the poems’ acceleration.
Matthew will be reading with Ruth Hobson (many people in Nottingham will know her as Ruth Shelton) – and any resemblance between the poets is not coincidental as they are siblings! Ruth will be reading from her first collection, Arthur Talks, which was inspired by her work with homeless people in Nottingham.
