 CHANGE OF VENUE: In Conversation with Laurie Penny


A prolific writer, Penny’s incisive political commentary has appeared in the New Statesman, The Guardian, The New York Times, The Nation, VICE and Time.

With articles exploring a broad range of topics from her unique perspective, from Donald Trump and the rise of the far right, to transgender rights and the culture of online harassment, this radical collection confirms Laurie Penny as one of the most important left-wing and feminist voices of our time.

Praise for Laurie Penny:

“An insightful, provocative and bold commentator. She is always relevant without slavishly following a supposedly ‘topical’ agenda set by others. Most importantly, she never compromises her compassion and humanity” – Irvine Welsh

“A writer and polemicist, a bad-ass, contrary, angry, bisexual troublemaker who is never happier than when she’s upsetting someone, or preferably everyone … We need her” – The Times

Doors Open – 7.00pm

Conversation Begins – 7.30pm
