We’re delighted to welcome award-winning poet and presenter of BBC’s Poetry Extra, Daljit Nagra to Chelmsford Library on Saturday 28 September at 11:45am.

Daljit will be reading from his poetry which is described as an energetic shot of expresso. Daljit and some guest poets will also be exploring “What is truth?”, to tie in with the theme of this year’s National Poetry Day. This event is in partnership with The Essex Cultural Diversity Project.

This event is free but booking is required.
