Come and celebrate the life of this much-loved writer at the launch of what will sadly be her final collection, Not Many Love Poems. Hosted by Carcanet as part of Manchester Literature Festival.
The literary community was shocked and saddened earlier this year by the untimely death of local poet and founder of Poets & Players, Linda Chase.
Linda has two previous collections published by Carcanet: The Wedding Spy and Extended Family. Her poems, inspired by love, illness, family and art, will be given new voice by her many friends, supporters, colleagues and fans.
Chaired by Linda’s publisher, Michael Schmidt, readers will include Carola Luther, John McAuliffe, Mimi Khalvati, Matthew Welton, Grevel Lindop and Vona Groarke.
