Kate Tempest with Don Paterson (2015 Event)

Still in her twenties, the ferociously-talented Kate Tempest has been shortlisted for the Mercury Prize, won the Ted Hughes Prize for innovation in poetry and secured a novel contract with Bloomsbury. In this event, recorded live at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, Tempest discusses her full-length poetry collection, Hold Your Own, with the acclaimed Scottish poet Don Paterson. As Tempest’s poetry editor, Paterson is well placed to ask her about the collection one critic called ‘a game changer’.
