RESCHEDULED: Poetry Double Bill 1: Hannah Hodgson & Martina Evans

NEW DATE ANNOUNCED!

In her first full collection, 163 Days, palliative care patient Hannah Hodgson probes her truth, the law’s truth, and the traumatic truth – truths that clash as loudly as a dropped tray of instruments in a silent operating theatre.

In her latest collection, Martina Evans explores the possibilities of a very different world offered by the exotic gift of a pair of American mules. Poems set in the radiography units of hospitals jostle with those of a city densely populated by vividly drawn human and animal characters.

Hannah Hodgson is a poet living with life-limiting illness. She is a recipient of a 2020 Northern Writers Award for Poetry. She has published two pamphlets, Dear Body and Where I’d Watch Plastic Trees Not Grow. Her first full length poetry collection, 163 Days, is just out.

Martina Evans grew up in Co. Cork and trained in Dublin as a radiographer before moving to London in 1988. She is the author of twelve books of poetry and prose. Her most recent collections are Now We Can Talk Openly About Men and American Mules. She reviews for the Irish Times.
