Book Launch: ‘Filigree’ Contemporary Black British Poetry

Monday 8th October 2018, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM @ Barbican Library, Barbican Arts Centre, Silk Street, London EC2Y 8DS

Filigree is the second anthology of contemporary Black British poetry published by Peepal Tree Press, a leader in Caribbean and Black British Literature. It follows in the footsteps of previous successful anthologies: RED (poetry) and Closure (short stories). RED has been described by Michael Rosen as, “a major contribution to the diverse cultures of blackness”.

Filigree’s inclusion of fresh voices from a younger generation of Black British poets illustrates inscribe’s commitment to producing groundbreaking anthologies. Included are young Poet Laureate’s of London, Poets from the Octavia collective, Barbican Young Poets and The Complete Works as well as a wealth of other recognisable names.

We will be celebrating the publication of this new book with a preview reading with some of the poets whose work is included.
