Imtiaz Dharker and Zaffar Kunial
Sunday 13th October, 14:30-15:30, Main Marquee
This year’s poetry reading comes from two distinguished poets peculiarly well placed to write about questions of belonging and identity. Imtiaz Dharker is a Lahore-born, Glasgow-raised poet, artist and documentary filmmaker. She has won the Queen’s Gold Medal but famously declined the Laureateship this year to focus on her writing. Zaffar Kunial was born in Birmingham and lives in Hebden Bridge and celebrates his mixed Pakistani-Anglo-Scottish heritage in his work. Zafffar’s debut collection Us was shortlisted for the 2018 T S Eliot Prize and the Costa Poetry Award.
