Frances Leviston: Disinformation

10th October 2015, 14:30 to 15:30, Durham Town Hall (Burlison Gallery), Frances Leviston

Part of Durham Book Festival 2015. A review of this event, written by Emily Van Houten, is available via Research English At Durham.

Frances Leviston’s first poetry collection, Public Dream, was one of the most acclaimed debuts of recent years and was shortlisted for the TS Eliot Prize and the Forward Prize for First Collection. Her vivid new collection,Disinformation, addresses one of the key questions of the age: how have we come to know what we think we know?

Introduced by Dr Vidyan Ravinthiran
