Miriam Gamble Readings

Miriam Gamble Readings

Miriam Gamble will be launching her third collection What Planet with a series of readings across the UK.   By turns uncanny, dark, poignant and uproarious, What Planet sets the individuality of perception and the inventiveness of memory against fixed certainties, probing chaos and madness in a post-truth world.

Miriam was brought up in Belfast, but is now based in Edinburgh. She gave a launch readings at Newcastle Poetry Festival, Edinburgh and the Belfast Book Festival in May and June 2019.

Sunday 20th October 2019, 5:15 pm, Ilkley Literature Festival

Ilkley Playhouse - Wharfeside
