Poet and former band member en route to Haworth

A PERFORMANCE poet and former lead singer of post-punk/gothic rock band March Violets performs at Haworth.

Rosie Garland will headline the next Poetry Curious event, at the Black Bull – in Main Street – next Wednesday (May 18), at 7pm.

She will read excerpts from her latest collection of poetry, What Girls Do in the Dark, and answer questions about her work.

The event is organized by independent bookseller Haworth, Wave of Nostalgia, which promotes the theme of strong women.

Its owner, Diane Park, said: “During the lockdown, I joined an online poetry group led by Rosie, which I found incredibly inspiring.

“She has such a deep knowledge of writing, and her own poems are really beautiful and moving.

“Rosie is one of the top performance poets in the country and I’m really looking forward to the event.”

Tickets for the evening cost £3 and can be obtained from Wave of Nostalgia on Main Street; call 01535 538352 or visit waveofnostalgia.co.uk/event-tickets.

Earlier this year, Wave of Nostalgia was named regional finalist for the coveted Independent Bookstore of the Year awards in the UK and Ireland.

He was one of ten suitors selected to compete for the North of England title.
