Apples and Snakes at Tate: Sabrina Mahfouz

​Join Sabrina Mahfouz reading from How You Might Know Me, an exploration of women's lives in the sex industry

How You Might Know Me is a poetic exploration of four women’s lives, connected through their experience in different areas of the UK’s growing sex industry. Written following years of workshops and Sabrina’s own experience of working in strip-clubs, the collection represents a broad range of backgrounds, ages and political convictions. Examining taboos, suprising sexual encounters, the politics of desire, vastly differing viewpoints on sex work and most prominently, the status of women’s equality in the UK today.

Sabrina will read from her work, followed by a Q & A and book signing.
