poetryEast is an ongoing series of cultural events at the LBC, exploring the meaning and value of the imagination. Evie Wyld and Max Porter inaugurate a series on the modern novel, in association with the London Review of Books.

Max Porter’s Grief is the Thing With Feathers, a meditation on grief and loss and love, is ‘a perfect summation of what it means to lose someone but still to love the world’ (Guardian). Evie Wyld was on Granta magazine’s once-in-a-decade list of ‘Best of Young British Novelists’ in 2013. Her most recent novel, All the Birds, Singing, won the Miles Franklin award, Australia’s most prestigious literature prize, while the Independent called her a ‘young writer with talent to burn’.

One of a series of evenings in association with the London Review of Books – also featuring James Meek, John Lanchester and Andrew O'Hagan. 'Best-ever' subscription rates to the London Review of Books, one of the world's foremost literary magazines, will be available at these events.

7.30pm. £10. Booking essential.
