On 16 November, Sharmilla Beezmohun of Speaking Volumes will be co-hosting an event at Lettrétage in Kreuzberg as part of the Breaking Ground tour sponsored by Arts Council England. Speaking Volumes will be presenting a very special night with a group of innovative and diverse British writers. 

Join pioneering performance poet Francesca Beard, award-winning poet Rishi Dastidar, the 2016-17 Young Peoples Laureate of London Caleb Femi, as well as bestselling author, scholar and filmmaker Xiaolu Guo. Using their own writing as a starting point, the authors’ performances on the night promise to break out of the classic reading format and incorporate performance, art, music, and other multimedia.
