FUNNY | POETIC | CANDID
Hollie McNish, winner of the Ted Hughes Award for New Poetry, joins us to read from her poetic memoir, Nobody Told Me, a taboo-breaking, humane and funny account of new parenthood. She will also perform poems from Plum, a wise, sometimes rude and piercingly candid, account of memories from childhood to attempted adulthood. Expect strong language as Hollie charts her journey through school discos, guilt, sex, politics, death and friendship.
Age Guidance: Recommended for ages 14+
Contains strong language and adult humour
