Hollie McNish Slug... and other things I’ve been told to hate

Thursday 5 May 2022

Crowne Plaza Hotel

We welcome the Ted Hughes Award-winning author of Nobody Told Me with her latest collection. Gloriously earthy and accessible, McNish’s mash-up of prose and poetry covers the modern condition with lashings of wit, intelligence and irreverent wisdom. From Finnish saunas and soppy otters to grief and grandparents, Slug is a book which holds a mirror lovingly up to the world, past and present, through her driving, funny, hopeful writing. 'I love Hollie's poems. There is such raw honesty and warmth and often humour within them. She is one of the best poets we have.' Matt Haig
