Fleurs du mal and other tales – an evening of poems by Annie Freud with The Garden Museum
Our community is invited to The Garden Museum for an evening of poetry readings with Annie Freud, a poet and essayist renowned for her live performances. Annie will be reading poems from her own collections, as well as a selection of Lucian Freud’s favourite poets. The evening will be chaired by poet and editor Kathryn Gray.
Annie Freud is a poet, painter, essayist, translator, editor and teacher. She is the author of four collections of poetry published by Picador: ‘The Best Man That Ever Was’, winner of the Dimplex Prize for new Writing, ‘The Mirabelles’, shortlisted for the TS Eliot Prize, ‘The Remains’ and ‘Hiddensee’. Reviewing Hiddensee, Fiona Samson writes: ‘These understated poems are a small masterclass in the art of synthesis.’
Also at The Garden Museum is Kathryn Gray, a poet and editor. Her first collection, The Never-Never, was shortlisted for the T. S. Eliot Prize and the Forward Prize for Best First Collection. Her second collection of poetry, Hollywood or Home, will be published by Seren in autumn 2023. With Andrew Neilson, she co-conceived and co-edits the digital poetry journal Bad Lilies.
