Fauverie – Pascale Petite – Manchester Literature Festival

October 3, 2014

Pascale Petit is performing at Manchester Museum as part of Manchester Literature Festival on Wednesday 8 October at 7pm.

Take a wild trip from the Rainy City to the City of Light. Join Manchester Prize-winning poet Pascale Petit as she launches her sixth collection, Fauverie. Her previous collection What the Water Gave Me: Poems after Frida Kahlo, was shortlisted for the TS Eliot Prize and Wales Book of the Year, and was Jackie Kay’s Book of the Year in The Observer. Drawing on a time when Petit was in Paris to spend time with her dying father, Fauverie explores the savage aspects of the city, the darker elements of human nature and the grace and power of endangered animals – and, fittingly, the event will take place in the atmospheric surroundings of the Manchester Museum’s Living Worlds Gallery.
Tickets £6/£4
