Join Laurie Bolger as she reads from Boxrooms, her debut poetry collection

Exploring everything from friendship and community to vegetables and cups of tea, Laurie Bolger’s Boxrooms (published by Burning Eye Books) makes poetry into your friend. With extraordinary warmth the poems build into a conversation looking at the meaning of relationships.

Laurie will read from her work, followed by an audience Q&A and book signing.


Laurie Bolger is the regular host of London’s leading stand up poetry night BANG Said the Gun and came to fame with her award-winning podcast Round @ Laurie’s. In 2018 she was lead facilitator for BBC 1Xtra’s Words First. She was shortlisted for Young Poet Laureate of London, and was part of the Voices Nationwide Campaign in 2017.
