About this Event

At this family friendly event Paul will be reading from his book Pansy Boy, which tells the story of a boy who revels in the joys of summer, exploring the flora and fauna around him. Reluctantly he returns to school where he is subjected to incessant bullying.

Intelligent and bright, he is driven to create a plan to reclaim his school.

SHORTLISTED FOR THE POLARI PRIZE 2018! Pansy Boy is a stunningly beautiful book for children. It takes on the issue of bullying and lets a child feel proud for being different.

Paul Harfleet plants pansies at the site of homophobic abuse, hel finds the nearest source of soil to where the incident occurred and plants one unmarked pansy. The flower is then photographed in its location and posted on his website, the image is entitled after the abuse.

As part of this year’s Homotopia festival St Helens has the privilege of hosting Paul for a range of events across a number of libraries.

Who is it for: Children 8+ and their families
