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.

For further information about other events in the city during the festival please see Poetry Can’s website www.poetrycan.co.uk
