Langoustine at the Poetry Cafe, Saturday March 7th

WHERE: Poetry Cafe, 22 Betterton Street, Tube: Covent Garden
WHEN: MARCH 7th Saturday 2009 7:30

We have quite a linguistic adventure lined up for March. Cristina Vita & Stephen Watts will be reading from their new book Mountain Language/Lingua di montagna is a bilingual prose poem tracing the course of a deep journey into land, language and memory. Stephen Watts's original English text, considering aspects of his family's roots in the Italian Alps, has been translated by Cristina Viti into one of the Italian languages it ultimately came from.

We also have Michael Zand who likes to cross-pollinate languages and is originally from Iran, the resplendent AnnMarie Eldon also with a new book out who likes to slice and dice the words and then sprinkle them with pizazzazzazzz, and a dash of humour for good measure with Stephanie Leal ...

Step right up!
