A rare opportunity to hear three very different award-winning writers explain why ‘Place’ matters in their work.

Essex-based Polish poet Wioletta Greg talks her about her wonderful memoir Swallowing Mercury, our writer-in-residence Sarah Perry discusses The Essex Serpent, and poet Philip Terry share insights into his new volume Quennets, which will take us from Berlin to the Essex Estuary.

This event is part of Essex Book Festival’s Place Weekend in Colchester on Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 March.
