Sinéad Morrissey & Michael Symmons Roberts
Fri 25 Aug 7:00pm - 8:00pm
Baillie Gifford Corner Theatre
In her new collection, Belfast's inaugural Poet Laureate, Sinéad Morrissey considers great feats of human engineering - ships, planes, robots - as the world struggles for balance and equanimity. Forward Prize winner Michael Symmons Roberts presents Mancunia, a real and unreal city with roots in both Manchester and in an imagined city. His writing, like Thomas More's, is about utopia.
