Part of Derby Book Festival

Sunday 30 May at 3:30pm - 4:30pm

Online Livestream

Brian Bilston, known as the Poet Laureate of Twitter, was due to join us in 2020 to talk about his debut novel, Diary of A Somebody, which was shortlisted for the Costa First Novel Prize in 2019.

Best known for his poetry, Alexa, what is there to know about love?, is a wonderful collection of poems about love in all its forms, covering everything from romantic love to familial love, to long-distance love, and even love on the internet.

The collection also features poems about the true passions for many book lovers: reading and literature - and the odd one about the subject causing many of us heartbreak - politics. With titles like Hold My Hand While We Jump Off This Cliff and Remembrance of Things Pasta, there’s something for even the most jaded romantic.

This is an online livestream. In-person tickets for this event are also available...
