Siobhan Logan, whose poem-story “Philae’s Book of Hours” was published by the European Space Agency and performed at the National Space Centre, will be at the Leicester Writers’ Showcase at Leicester’s Central Library this August.
Siobhan Logan’s travels, whether in reindeer sled or space rocket, are fuelled by imagination as much as research. Her poetry/prose collections began by chasing the mysterious Northern Lights of the Arctic but recently she’s moved out into space with an adventure to a far-flung comet. Her work has been published by the European Space Agency and performed at the British Science Museum and National Space Centre. Earlier poetry collections, “Firebridge to Skyshore: A Northern Lights’ Journey” and “Mad, Hopeless and Possible: Shackleton’s Endurance Expedition” were both published by Original Plus.
City Librarian Matthew Vaughan says, “We launched the Leicester Writers’ Showcase in January 2017 and are pleased to say the Writers’ Showcase is now a regular fixture in the Leicester Central Library calendar. On a personal note, working in partnership with highly motivated and talented people to put on these events makes Leicester Writers’ Showcase one of the most exciting projects I’ve been involved in since joining Leicester libraries.”
The Leicester Writers’ Showcase aims to highlight Leicester’s literary talent and create conversations between readers and writers.
