Peter Didsbury will be undertaking a poetry reading from some of the British Library archive of first edition poetry books. Peter was born in Fleetwood, Lancashire, but moved to Hull as a child. He was educated at Hull and Oxford and has worked as an archaeologist. His work follows a quirkier and more philosophical style than that of his contemporaries, and has been a potent influence on younger Hull poets. His Scenes from a Long Sleep: New and Collected Poems was published in 2003.
