Gerry Potter Book Launch
Flapjack Press presents Gerry Potter’s Li’l Book o’ small Poems (or is it?)
“You’ll never live more life than wha’ I’m livin’ through right now…”
Join Gerry Potter on a voyage into social relativism and the domestic/fantastic in a punchy ‘n’ pithy yet generously discursive collection.
Contemplating both the ingrained and fleeting fears of a life enlightened through c-PTSD diagnosis, these are li’l poems addressing big issues.
From the author of Planet Young, Bafta-winner Sophie Willan’s book of choice on BBC TV’s Between the Covers.
Gerry Potter is a poet, playwright, actor, director, and both creator and destroyer of the infamous gingham diva Chloe Poems. National Museums Liverpool lists him amongst their city’s leading LGBTQIA+ icons, and he was profiled in the documentary film My Name is Gerry Potter, which premiered at Homotopia.
Author performance and book signing. With special guests Caleb Everett and David Viney.
Adult themes / LGBTQIA+.
