At times blistering and riotous, at times soulful and exuberant, Olivia Gatwood’s new book, Life of the Party is about what it means to be a girl and a woman in today’s world and the challenge of briefly being both. Join us at one of her tour dates to celebrate its publication this Autumn.

Olivia Gatwood celebrates the teenage girl and the colour pink while questioning the role that fear and violence play in who we are and what we become. Her language is piercing, her view is singular; her experience is universal.

This is a unique opportunity to experience Olivia’s gut-wrenching and life-affirming poetry first-hand as she performs her work, and hear her in conversation, uncovering the stories and context behind her much-loved poems.

Don’t miss your chance to purchase a book with your ticket for just £24 Standard and £22 Student. This is a fantastic opportunity to get your hands on the book at a discounted price (RRP. £9.99) and is available online only. Books will be available for collection on the night.
