Join us in launching Lucia Dove’s debut poetry pamphlet Say cucumber, published by Broken Sleep Books.
Fragmented experiences and memories from Russia and Essex, Say cucumber leads you into a world that slips between the familiar and unfamiliar.
Life in Russex, in all its sensory vividness, is grown, stuffed, picked and pickled until what you thought you recognised has been rearranged and changed into something new.
You are invited to this pamphlet party on Friday 15th November to celebrate its release. There will be readings by Billie Manning, Nadia de Vries and Lucia Dove.
The first reading will begin at 7:30pm.
Drinks and copies of the book available to buy! Please bring cash if you’d like to buy a book.
