We’re delighted to announce the next in our poetry salon series at Burley Fisher Books, with readings from Katharine Kilalea and Khairani Barokka. We will be selling copies of No. 25 and, yes, there will be drinks.

Her debut poetry collection, One Eye’d Leigh (2009), was shortlisted for the Costa Poetry Award and longlisted for the Dylan Thomas Prize for writers under 30. Her debut novel, OK, Mr Field was published in 2018.
