Apples and Snakes at Tate: Caroline Bird

Join poet, playwright and author, Caroline Bird. Caroline will be reading from her latest poetry collection, followed by a Q & A and book signing.

In These Days of Prohibition is Caroline’s fifth publication. Caroline’s poetry mixes dark hilarity and telling social comment.

In These Days of Prohibition shifts between different forms of language. And mixes the surreal imagery of her early work with the badlands of the human psyche.  Her poems hold their subjects in an unflinching grip. Address faces behind the veneer. Asking what it is that keeps us alive.

This collection received widespread acclaim and was shortlisted for the 2017 Ted Hughes Award and T.S Eliot Prize.
