Part of: World Poets’ Tour 2008 Corsino Fortes, Gaarriye and the poetry of Noshi Gillani at Manchester Literature Festival
Manchester Central Library
It was standing room only for our lunchtime reading at the Manchester Poetry Festival featuring the poems of three of our international poets - Corsino Fortes, Gaarriye and Noshi Gillani - read by their three brilliant translators, British poets Sean O'Brien, W N Herbert and Lavinia Greenlaw.
Unfortunately, Noshi Gillani was unable to take part in the tour and so her poems were read in Urdu by her translator, Nukbah Langah.
