Brunel Author Event: Daljit Nagra

9th December 2013

Epic battles, questing heroes and colourful tales are going to be shadowing the shelves of the Library this December, as we host a talk, Q & A and signing with T.S Eliot short-listed poet Daljit Nagra as part of the new Brunel Author Series, in partnership with Waterstones Uxbridge.

Daljit Nagra first came to prominence when his energetic and dazzling first poetry collection Look We Have Coming To Dover! was published by Faber & Faber in 2007 to great acclaim. This time he will be reading from The Ramayana, his reinterpretation of the epic Indian poem. It is the story of how Rama’s wife, Sita, was kidnapped by Ravana, Lord of the Underworld, and how he fights to win her back. Daljit was inspired by his grandparent’s oral version of the story, but his own Ramayana is filled with his trademark kinetic wordplay and searing imagery.

The event will take place in the Brunel Research Commons on floor 3 of the Library n Brunel Library on Monday 9th December @7.30pm, and is ticket only – click here to reserve your place. Books will be available to buy and be signed on the night.

If you fancy a break from the rigours of study why not take a journey with us to the Underworld and enjoy a night of poetry and performance at Brunel Library?
