Later this month, our home town of Todmorden will be hosting its first ever international book festival, and we are delighted that it will include 2 events featuring Arc poets - details below:

Tony Curtis - Late Night Poetry at the Queen

Much-loved Irish poet Tony Curtis will be reading from his most recent collection, Approximately in the Key of C. His poetry captures the small beauties found in the imbalances and imperfections we take for granted, with each poem discovering those moment-by-moment truths that together compose a life and give it meaning.

Queen's Hotel, Todmorden
