Bristol Poetry Festival: Whistle

Saturday 05 October 2013, 17:30 to 20:05

Martin Figura with readings by Helen Ivory and Deborah Harvey

Martin Figura’s Whistle centres on his mother’s death at the hands of his father when he was 9 years old. This profound and uplifting work transcends this shocking central event and presents us with a tender and beautiful coming-of-age story. Poet and artist Helen Ivory is the author of four collections of poetry and Bristol based Deborah Harvey is a poet and novelist.

Bristol Poetry Festival presents a programme of readings, performances and poetry activities at Arnolfini and across the city bringing together a mix of the most entertaining, inspirational and award winning poets and performers from Bristol, the south west, the UK and beyond.
