Join us to celebrate the publication of Pearl, a collection of short stories from a beloved North Eastern poet, playwright and novelist the late Julia Darling, published by Mayfly and the Estate of Julia Darling.
Including a selection of stories taken from her acclaimed first collection Bloodlines, BBC Radio 4 broadcasts and unpublished archive, these stories will be brought to life with readings and memories from some of Julia’s friends: actors Judi Earl and Zoe Lambert.
Julia Darling wrote two novels: Crocodile Soup and The Taxi Driver’s Daughter; her poetry collection, Sudden Collapses in Public Places, was a Poetry Book Society recommendation.
This event will tour to libraries and community centres in County Durham and will be accompanied by free creative writing workshops led by writers Kirsty Logan and Michelle Green.
