Black Eyes presents: ‘Indelicate Sundays’

Wednesday 10th April Doors 7pm – close 10pm
Venue: John Sebastian Lightship

About the author:

In 1976, Hannah was born and ‘hard-raised’ in Birmingham where she was taught the Fine Art of poor decision making. 18 years later, she was ‘shot’ to the Soft- South-West where she put into practice all she had learned.

In recent times, now in Cambridge, she is ‘Mastering’ the Fine Art of unlearning.

Hannah now identifies as a work in progress; there’s no guilt, shame or inadequacy attached to ‘letting go’. Indelicate Sundays is Hannah’s third collection – a last-ditch attempt to learn from all those poor decisions.
About the book:

Every Sunday night, after I was dropped to her, I prayed to find a ‘Snoopy’ watch under my pillow by dawn.
Forty years later, every Sunday night, I pray only that the pillow under my head is both familiar and safe.
I will, probably, always turn the pillow over at dawn, Just in case.

Through a series of stark, vivid snapshots this sizzling, brave work doesn’t just offer glimpses of Hannah’s life, but instead leads us right to the depths of humanity. Indelicate Sundays, deals with the difficult with admirable honesty. Yet Hannah’s turn of phrase is delicate and the poems are exquisitely crafted… This poignant insight into a tortured life will leave you breathless, reeling and stirred to the very core.

The night will also feature readings from a selected list of guest poets:

Nick Lovell
Derek Dohren
Helen Sheppard
Josephine Lay
Melanie Brantonv
