Scarborough Library will host a reading by Andrew McMillan - one of the most exciting young poets currently working in the UK. As well as reading now-classic works from his 2009 pamphlet Every Salt Advance, Andrew will dip into the sequence he produced in 2010 for the iMove project, and give poems from his new pamphlet The Moon is a Supporting Player their first North Yorkshire airing.

Andrew, who is described in The Salt Book of Younger Poets as one of the writers who 'will dominate UK poetry in years to come', has been Poet-in-Residence for Off the Page and the Regional Youth Theatre Festival; writer-in-residence for the Watershed Landscape Project and Apprentice Poet-in-Residence for the Ilkley Literature Festival. He edits Cake magazine, alongside Martha Sprackland, and is poetry editor for noted ezine The Cadaverine.
