#var:page_name# cover

Don't miss this rare appearance from Hera Lindsay Bird - the poet Carol-Ann Duffy described as:'Without doubt the most arresting and original new young poet - on page and in performance.'
Hera is a writer from Wellington, New Zealand. Her debut poetry collection 'Hera Lyndsay Bird' was released this year by Penguin UK, and became a cult bestseller in her home country after her poems 'Monica Geller' and 'Keats is Dead so Fuck me From Behind' went viral. She won the 2017 Sarah Broom award and the Ockham Best First Poetry Book Award. Her newst poems can be found in the excellent pamphlet 'Pamper Me to Hell & Back', recently published by smith/doorstop.

She will be reading poems from both her books and answering questions. Watch for further announcements of local poets who will be reading with her.

Tickets cost £5 and are available online only.
