Robert Peake and Richie Mccaffery at Waterstones, Birmingham
September 19 @ 19:00 - 21:00
Join Robert Peake and Richie McCaffery at the Waterstones in Birmingham to launch their new books. With special guests Cynthia Miller and Isobel Dixon.
Throughout 2018 Nine Arches Press is celebrating 10 years of publishing. Join us as we celebrate the launch of two exciting new collections!
British-American poet Robert Peake returns with his much-anticipated second collection, Cyclone: poems about weathering storms — personal, political, psychological — in our present-day climate of chaos. From his trans-Atlantic perspective Robert writes of global turmoil and belonging, of bereavement and the long aftermath, and of everyday kindnesses.
Exploring place and displacement, boundaries and borders, Richie McCaffery’s latest work, Passport, grew out of his experience of living in Ghent. As an ‘outsider’ in the city, his poems explore the meaning of running from and coming back home, and how we find our place in life, love and language.
