GemArts, NCLA and Trashed Organ are pleased to present an evening with the celebrated poet, Daljit Nagra. Daljit will be reading from his third collection of poetry, British Museum, which asks profound questions of our ethics and responsibilities at a time of great challenge to our sense of national identity. After the reading, Daljit will be in discussion with Dr Neelam Srivastava, Senior Lecturer in Postcolonial Literature at Newcastle University. Please also join us for a drinks reception afterwards.
 
Daljit Nagra’s parents came to Britain from the Punjab, India, in the late 1950s. Nagra comes from a Sikh background and was born and grew up in West London then Sheffield. He has published three collections of poetry all with Faber & Faber. His latest collection, British Museum, is due in May 2017. His version of the Ramayana was nominated for the TS Eliot Prize
