Event Details

Writer, director and poet Nayomi Apsara reads a selection of pieces from her debut collection, Throw Me Mountains, in the beautiful setting of historic Doornberg house. Will Harris, too, shares poems from RENDANG and Brother Poem, exploring relationships and the formation of the self through well-chosen words. An intimate event, offering the opportunity to reflect on the work of two superb poets.

About your host… 

Dating back to 1712, ochre-walled Doornberg is a stunning house set high on Richmond Hill. Recently restored with impeccable attention to detail by Peter Harris and his team, the house celebrates Galle’s richly layered history – and showcases a curated collection of contemporary Sri Lankan artwork. 

With special thanks to Doornberg for kindly sponsoring this event.
