Thursday, 23rd May
7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Five Leaves Bookshop, Nottingham
Join us for the launch of the two new New Walk Editions pamphlets: Linda Stern Zisquit, From the Notebooks of Korah’s Daughter, and Declan Ryan, Fighters, Losers.
Linda Stern Zisquit has published five collections, most recently Return from Elsewhere and Havoc: New & Selected Poems. Her translations from Hebrew include Wild Light: Selected Poems of Yona Wallach and These Mountains: Selected Poems of Rivka Miriam. For many years she has been Poetry Coordinator and Associate Professor in the Bar Ilan MA in Creative Writing Program. Born in Buffalo, NY, she lives in Jerusalem, Israel where she founded and runs Artspace Gallery.
Declan Ryan was born in County Mayo, Ireland, and has lived mainly in London. His previous pamphlet was published in the Faber New Poets series in 2014. His work has appeared in Poetry Review, Poetry London, Poetry (US), Poetry Ireland and the New Statesman, among others.
It is an honour to publish these two tremendous pamphlets, and the event is not to be missed. This is Declan’s first publication since his Faber New Poets pamphlet in 2014, and Linda is making a rare visit to these shores from Israel.
The event is free, refreshments are provided, and pamphlets will be available for the first time on the night. Please let Five Leaves Bookshop know you are coming on firstname.lastname@example.org
