Kerry Hudson: Lowborn

Manchester Literature Festival presents…                              

“I decided that I’d start to try to acknowledge the strength it had taken for me to get through, and over, my upbringing and become the woman I am today.”

Kerry Hudson grew up in a succession of council estates and B&Bs in some of the UK’s poorest towns. In her timely and heart-breaking memoir, Lowborn, she recounts her experiences of growing up in poverty in the 80s and 90s, returning to each of the places she was raised in – from Aberdeen to Canterbury – to see the effects of Tory austerity in the present day. Kerry is the author of two award-winning novels, Tony Hogan Bought Me An Ice-Cream Float Before He Stole My Ma and Thirst. She will be in conversation with Naomi Frisby.
