Seren Poets Ben Wilkinson and Rhiannon Hooson | Shrewsbury Literature Festival

Poetry Brunch - three poets, coffee and cake! Join Brenda Read Brown, the winner of the first SFL Poetry Slam, as she welcomes Ben Wilkinson and Rhiannon Hooson to a lovely Poetry Brunch hosted at the splendid Stop! Café in Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery. Ben's debut full collection of poems, Way More Than Luck, was published by Seren Books in February 2018.  From the thumping heartbeat of the distance runner to the roar of football terraces across the decades, this debut confronts the struggles and passions that come to shape a life. Rhiannon has won major awards for her work, including an Eric Gregory award from the Society of Authors. Her first full length collection, The Other City (Seren 2016), was shortlisted for the Wales Book of the Year award and was described by the judges as "Stunning... at a pitch of achievement many of us will not reach across a career." Tickets: £10/£6.
