What: POETRY HEARINGS – Berlin Festival of Poetry in English
When: Fri 14 and Sat 15 November 2008
Where: Salon Rosa, above Sophiensaele in Berlin-Mitte
This year’s Poetry Hearings promise to be the strongest yet, with 10 poets from the US, UK, Ireland and Australia reading over two nights at Salon Rosa, above the Sophiensaele in Berlin-Mitte. Berlin favourite MC Jabber goes head-to-head with Jem Rolls, whose performances are currently taking Canada by storm. Critically acclaimed new Picador poet Annie Freud reads alongside Ben Borek, whose novel in verse Donjong Heights was described by Time Out as “truly fantastic”. Two nights of what might well be the most interesting and entertaining English-language poetry you’ll hear all year.
