Trudie Gorman Book Launch – Trust the Damage

April 11 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Join us for a Book Launch with Trudie Gorman to celebrate the publication of Trust The Damage.

Free Tickets Here

In Trust the Damage, her deeply intimate debut poetry collection, Trudie Gorman explores the connection between class, poverty, and illness. Journeying from a council estate in the 90s to the fractured ecosystem of the present day, she contends with the grief of losing her body to illness, whilst also finding hope and connection.

The body in all of its morphisms is the main character here, while memory, legacy, violence against women, healthcare, working-class culture and love ripple through the collection in vibrant coexistence. The poems are at once visceral and unflinching in their depictions, yet always stretch towards the light, capturing what it means for a life to bloom in the dark.

We kindly ask all attending to wear a face mask, if possible. Kind thanks for your understanding
