Join poet, writer, and editor, Karen McCarthy Woolf reading from her new poetry collection, Seasonal Disturbancewhich draws on a variety of multidisciplinary influences. Karen’s writing has been commissioned as an installation, selected for Poems on the Underground, produced as a poetry/dance film and dropped from a helicopter over the Houses of Parliament.

Seasonal Disturbances is set against a backdrop of ecological and emotional turbulence, and its poems are charged yet meditative explorations of nature, the city, and the self. Lyrical and inventive, these poems test classic and contemporary forms, from a disrupted zuihitsu written on board a Dutch barge in the middle of the Thames that considers her relationship with water, to biting satirical pieces exploring contemporary experiences of migration. These poems aim to inspire an ‘activism of the heart, where we connect to and express forces of renewal and love.” A Poetry Society Recommendation.

Karen will read from her work, followed by a Q & A and book signing.
