Michael Longley is loved for the quiet elegance of his assured, meditative lyrics. Join us for this reading from his brand new collection Angel Hill, a book which is sure to captivate his many fans. From the moody seas and skies of Carrigskeewaun in County Mayo — the landscape central to his work for many years — to the Western Highlands, his respect and ever-keen eye for nature spill into Angel Hill. Reading alongside him is Leontia Flynn, whom the Guardian called ‘one of the most original and accomplished poets of her generation’. Her third collection Profit and Loss was shortlisted for the TS Eliot Prize.
