Apples and Snakes and Tate Enterprises present:

Apples and Snakes @ Uniqlo Tate Lates: Bridget Minamore

Join poet, critic, essayist and journalist Bridget Minamore, a British-Ghanaian writer from South East London reading from her debut pamphlet of poems on modern love and loss, Titanic.

Her writing often touches on pop culture, theatre, race and class. Titanic (Outspoken Press) explores the sensibilities surrounding the universal themes of love, loss and the subsequent struggles we all face at some point in our relationships. Themed around a series of popular songs and a certain sinking ship, Minamore riffs from poem to poem with a choice selection of humorous and somber verse.

‘Really fresh and funny with some lines that stop you short. Captures love and heartbreak in all its messiness and (skewered) clichés’ – Goodreads

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

When: Friday 25 January, 7-8pm
Where: The Terrace shop, L1, Blavatnik Building, Tate Modern, Bankside, SE1 9TG
Tickets: This event is free but ticketed. Tickets will be available from 5pm on the day at the Level 0 Ticket Desk on a first come, first served basis.
