Verve Poetry Press Launch - Leon Priestnall & Nafeesa Hamid

  • Waterstones Birmingham 24-26 High Street Birmingham, England, B4 7SL United Kingdom (map)

Help Verve Poetry Press launch its next two collections at this magnificent launch event for Leon Priestnall's Bennetts Hill Blues and Nafeesa Hamid's Besharam. Featuring guest readings from Jack Crowe, Mina Mekic, Yasmina Silva, Bethany Slinn, Scarlett Ward and Zeddie, all of whom have single poems featured in the collections.


In the second half, Leon and Nafeesa will deliver extended sets of poems taken from their wonderful new books, and afterwards will sign copies for any who are sensible enough to want one. Be first to grab hold of either or both of these wonderful debut collections!

This event will be hosted most capably by Verve Poetry Press Co-founder, poet and TV star, Amerah Saleh!

Tickets are £5 but are refundable against a purchase of either book.
