Revathi is a poet, activist and a doctor. Founder editor of Panikkudam, a literary quarterly for women’s writing; also the first Tamil feminist magazine. She has published three books of poetry - sometimes described as controversial.
The strong opening line up also includes Mohamed El Deeb, Ana Blandiana, Carolyn Forché, Nikola Madzirov, Robert Hass and Anne Michaels. The event starts at 8pm and you need a ticket. These all seem to be a reasonable £10. You won't see these guys every day. Purcell Room on the Southbank is the location.
