Join stand-up poet, presenter and facilitator Laurie Bolger, reading from her debut poetry collection, Boxrooms.
Exploring everything from friendship and community to vegetables and cups of tea, Laurie Bolger’s Boxrooms (Burning Eye Books) makes poetry into your friend. With extraordinary warmth the poems build into a conversation looking at the meaning of relationships.
