Penny Pepper: The Naked Punk part two – Flesh and Bone.
“I’m Naked because I strive to be open in my writing, to show what needs to be shown….Accept yourself, accept a new story.”
We present Penny’s second appearance on the Hastings 2019 festival stage in The Naked Punk Part Two – Flesh and Bone.
In Flesh and Bone, Penny will focus on her written work, with readings and in conversation.
The Naked Punk part one – Raw and Uncovered is being presented by The Hastings Fringe festival
is an acclaimed author, performer and activist. Versatile and candid, her debut poetry collection Come Home Alive, was published in 2018 (Burning Eye Books). Its racy cover was immediately banned on Facebook! Her memoir, First in the World Somewhere (Unbound, 2017) charts her punky coming of age and creative journey in the Thatcher years and beyond. Launched at The Royal Festival Hall, it was chosen by actor/activist Liz Carr as a witty and candid personal pick on Radio 4’s ‘A Good Read’. Penny guests as a columnist for The Guardian, The Huffington Post and more, and appears on TV & Radio.
Penny Pepper’s work is a virtuoso display of wit, invention and courage.
