StAnza 2019: Border Crossings - Ken Cockburn, Richard Gwyn and Arne Rautenberg

  • The Undercroft St John's House, 69 South Street St Andrews KY16 9QW (map)

Don’t miss the final Border Crossings session of this festival, in which two poets draw from a wide range of influences. Richard Gwyn is a poet and translator whose most recent collection, Stowaway: A Levantine Adventure, centres around an unnamed protagonist, a kind of anti-Ulysses, and this character’s journeys around the eastern Mediterranean. Richard will be reading alongside Arne Rautenberg, an award-winning German poet translated into English by Ken Cockburn. Arne’s playful work ranges from concrete poetry to writing for children through to exuberant and experimental sound texts.

Tickets are £4.50/£3.50 and are available from the StAnza event page or by calling the Byre Theatre Box Office on 01334 475000
