CANCELLED – Launch of The Unmapped Woman by Abegail Morley

Wednesday 29 April 2020, 7:15 pm9:15 pm

Join Abegail Morley, Robert Peake and Katie Griffiths at the Poetry Cafe for the launch of Abegail’s new collection The Unmapped Woman.

This deeply moving collection explores the altitudes of loss and trauma, mapping the stark new territory that a bereavement leaves behind and the landmarks of recovery and survival. Life changing themes cross paths in this clear-sighted and profound book of courageous poems.

“These are poems to live with – tight as the skin of a drum.” – Robert Peake
