Two Masters of Sparkling Wit and Innovation: Luke Kennard and Tony Williams
A Colpitt's Poetry reading.
Tony Williams’s first book, The Corner of Arundel Lane and Charles Street, full of unusual voices and bizarre goings on, was shortlisted for the Aldeburgh First Collection prize. Luke Kennard’s hilarious, witty, and genre-bending work has earned him widespread praise, and made him one of the PBS’s Next Generation Poets.
