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.
