12. Maya Angelou Tribute

Many poets appearing at the Festival (including Don Paterson, Larry Beckett and George Wallace) join us to read and celebrate the words and life of the phenomenal Maya Angelou.

Hosted by Ursula Owen, a Founder Director of Virago Press, who introduced Maya Angelou’s stunning autobiographies to the UK. ‘My life has been long,’ Maya Angelou wrote in one of her last
books. ‘And believing that life loves the liver of it, I have dared to try many things, sometimes trembling, but daring still.’

This is a moving and inspirational event.
