For Books' Sake presents 'That's What She Said'
Wed 31 May 2017, 19:00 – 22:00 BST
Howdy hepcats! Are you ready for another awesome instalment of 'That's What She Said', For Books’ Sake’s night of spoken word all written and performed by women? By welcoming a wide range of speakers, from slam poetry to storytelling, contemporary political thought to comedy, we bring women’s voices to the forefront, while at the same time giving a platform to writers and performers we love.
Speaking on the night:
Leone Ross writes magic realism, erotica and psychological drama. She has published two critically praised novels, All The Blood Is Red and Orange Laughter. Her short fiction was shortlisted for the V.S Pritchett Prize and Salt Publishing’s Scott Prize. She is Senior Lecturer at Roehampton University. Ross’s short story collection, Come Let Us Sing Anyway is out June 5th with Peepal Tree Press.
Raveen Kaur is a contemporary poet whose work explores the perception of South Asian women, deeply entrenched by its patriarchal roots. She has a special interest in female empowerment and addresses areas such as rape and domestic violence. Kaur’s work has been published by Leslee Udwin, but her passion to make her motherland ‘home’ again, has led her to write a 10,000 word research essay on the perception of rape in modern day India.
Open mic walk ups on the evening are welcomed but with limited places it might be advisable to email email@example.com if you have a burning desire to speak
