Riverain Book Launch and River Cruise – York Literature Festival On the Water

March 23 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Tickets: here

With Robert Powell & guests Abi Curtis, Ian Duhig, and Ben Crosthwaite. What better way to dip in to poet Robert Powell’s new collection Riverain than with a riverboat launch party? Inspired in part by York’s two rivers, this diverse collection is a dream-like journey through reality and metaphor, the present and the past. Join Robert with guest writers, musicians and others, for a creative water-themed evening on the River Ouse!

Boarding 5.30pm, 6pm – 8pm.
