We could not be more excited. An author event (via Zoom) with Sarah Perry, in association with the Essex Book Festival. Sarah Perry, author of novels The Essex Serpent, Melmoth and After Me Comes the Flood, has written non-fiction title ESSEX GIRLS – a defence and celebration of the Essex Girl. Publication is on 1st October and to celebrate the launch we are hosting a Zoom event where Sarah Perry will be in conversation with Ros Green, Director of Essex Book Festival.
Essex Girls are disreputable, disrespectful and disobedient. They speak out of turn, too loudly and too often, in an accent irritating to the ruling classes. Their bodies are hyper-sexualised and irredeemably vulgar.
They are given to intricate and voluble squabbling. They do not apologise for any of this. And why should they? In this exhilarating feminist defence of the Essex girl, Sarah Perry re-examines her relationship with her much-maligned home county.
The cost for the event is £8 and will include a hardback copy of Essex Girls (Signed while stocks last!).
Places can be reserved by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and zoom details will be sent 48hrs before the event.
