BookTalk Special World Poetry Day Event, 21 March 2018: Telling Tales

Our next BookTalk event will celebrate World Poetry Day with a discussion of a brilliant re-interpretation of Geoffrey Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales for the 21st century by one of the UK’s foremost poets: Patience Agbabi’s 2014 poetry collection, Telling Tales.


“Whenever I got stuck I reread the original text and imagined Chaucer winking at me, saying, go girl.”

— Patience Agbabi to The Guardian, 23rd Jan. 2014.
