Sarah Howe & William Letford (2016 Event)

We were thrilled to open the 2016 Festival with two of the most powerful young voices in British poetry. Sarah Howe's debut collection Loop of Jade won the 2016 T S Eliot Prize for Poetry and was described as ‘original, exquisite, erudite and adventurous.’ Stirling-born William Letford has been dubbed by Guardian critic Nicholas Lezard as 'the new Scottish genius'. He launched his highly anticipated second collection, Dirt. Recorded live at the 2016 Edinburgh International Book Festival.
