National Poetry Library Lates: June

This event has been cancelled as we are currently closed due to the coronavirus crisis.

Bend your ear for poets including Natalie Diaz, who share works inspired by our Hayward Gallery exhibition Reverb: Sound Into Art at our late-night salon.

Take a seat in the intimate and relaxed space of our Hayward Gallery Cafe for National Poetry Library Lates.

Our series provides a platform for both emerging and established poets and spoken word artists.

Natalie Diaz was born and raised in the Fort Mojave Indian Village in Needles, California, on the banks of the Colorado River. She is Mojave and an enrolled member of the Gila River Indian Tribe.

Her first poetry collection, When My Brother Was an Aztec, won an American Book Award.

Diaz is a 2018 MacArthur Fellow, as well as a Lannan Literary Fellow and a Native Arts Council Foundation Artist Fellow, and was awarded the Holmes National Poetry Prize and a Hodder Fellowship from Princeton University.
