THIS EVENT HAS SOLD OUT. 

Kate Tempest is an award-winning poet (her epic poem Brand New Ancients won the Ted Hughes Prize for poetry in 2013) and rapper nominated for the Mercury Music Prize 2014. A storyteller of extraordinary power and humanity, she is rapidly becoming one of the most exciting and distinctive voices of her generation. Her debut novel, The Bricks that Built the Houses, explores a cross-section of contemporary urban life with a powerful moral microscope, giving us intimate stories of hidden lives, and showing us that good intentions don’t always lead to the right decisions. Taking us into the homes and hearts of ordinary people, their families and their communities, Tempest exposes moments of beauty, disappointment, ambition and failure and questions how we live with and love one another. She talks about her novel and her work.

In association with Spike Island and Festival of Ideas Novel Writers series.
