War Poets with Brian Turner at the Ashmolean

Tremendous to have Brian Turner with us at the Ashmolean Museum for our War Poets Today reading with Adnan al Sayegh and hear Brian and Adnan read each other’s poems in translation. Brian also read from his new memoir – My Life as a Foreign Country – charting his time as a sergeant in the US Army in Iraq. Hugely compelling. Many thanks to them both.
