Rennie Parker is a poet and arts worker living in the Midlands. She will largely be reading from her new Shoestring collection, her fifth book of poetry (and fourth from Beeston’s best poetry publisher!).
Join a journey into the toxic workplace. Who are the winners and the losers, who is using whom? When people are seen as collateral damage, how can anyone survive these places intact?
And was it always like this?
Welcome to the circus.
Jenny Swann (reading a poetry book as it happens) – Five Leaves’ former poetry editor – returns to the stage (well, a bar-stool at the front of the bookshop) as a poet in her own right. Author of some early Shoestring collections, she has been a publisher and poetry café co-chair.
Bookings are closed for this event.
