26. John Murillo and Thomas Lynch


Two Americans poets.  John Murillo’s collections are Kontemporary and Amerikan Poetry and Up Jump The Boogie. The son of an African American father and a Mexican mother, his poems draw on music, oral poetry, street knowledge and are shaped by hostile social and political climates.

Thomas Lynch, poet, essayist and undertaker, reads from Bone Rosary which brings together the extraordinary work of a lifetime. Lyrical, elegiac poems that describe the dead citizens of his hometown, his family relationships, and scenes and myths from his Irish Catholic upbringing. Hosted by Ledbury Poetry Critic Dzifa Benson
