Poets in the Bookshop with Ivy Alvarez

The Dylan Thomas CentreThursday, 25 June at 7.30pm

Ivy Alvarez is this month’s guest poet at the Dylan Thomas Centre‘s Poets in the Bookshop on Thursday, 25 June at 7.30pm.

Ivy Alvarez was born in the Philippines, grew up in Tasmania and now lives in Cardiff. Her work has been widely published and performed, and she has held several residencies and won a variety of awards. Her latest full collection is Mortal (Red Morning Press).

“Sharpness of perception, whether of taste, eye or ear, is what defines this tightly written collection. The sharpness of the heart as mothers and daughters strain to find continuity, the sharpnesses of a sometimes painful, sometimes delightful present, and the deep poignancies of memory, are incised across these poems. Here’s a striking new voice to accompany us from Hades to Tasmania, from myth to mother” – WN Herbert

The evening will also include an open mic session. For more information, please contact the Dylan Thomas Centre on 01792 463980 or see here. Tickets are £4-00 Full Price, £2-80 Concessions and £1-60 Swansea PTL.
