Poets Live – SPECIAL EVENT: John Kliphan’s wake, The Highlander, 1pm, March 4th

Many of you will know that Poets Live was inspired by Live Poets, the reading series created by John Kliphan. Unfortunately, John died last month.

In accordance with his wishes, there will be a celebration of his life held in The Highlander, the old Live Poets pub, at 1pm on March 4th.

The Highlander, 8 rue de Nevers, M Pont-Neuf / Odéon.

The wake will feature readings from his posthumously published collection LOW LEVEL FLYING, to be launched at the event. Profits from the book will launch a memorial fund to support the publication of new young anglophone poets from Paris.

NOTE: the event was originally organised for later in the day, but was moved forward to avoid conflict with the rearranged Rugby international between France and Ireland.
