Professor Armitage will read from works ranging from his first book Zoom to his most recent The Unaccompanied, including sections from his celebrated translation of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. He will also speak about his archive in the University of Leeds' Special Collections, and why so many of his works have connections to the local area.
