Hollie McNish - Authors Spotlight

Holly McNish will be joining us to perform poems, read from and chat honestly and openly about her latest book, Nobody Told Me. The book is a unique blend of poetry and storytelling, taken straight from Hollie’s personal diaries. As she states herself ‘it is not a polished collection’; rather, it is a very candid, at times gutting, at others hilarious, look at her experiences from pregnancy to the pre-school drop off. Expect strong language as she talks colours, cravings, politics, transformers, sex, tree-climbing, feeding, train journeys, lots and lots of love and occasionally locking herself in toilets to cry a little. Holly is an Arts Foundation Fellow in Spoken Word, and was the first poet to record at London’s famed Abbey Road Studios. “I can’t take my ears off her” – Benjamin Zephaniah This event is supported by Poetry on Loan www.poetryonloan.org.uk Recommended for adults only as it is not suitable for children.
