Writer and editor Sophie Collins, Glasgow Women’s Library and Book Works’ current artist-in-residence, will read from her work in progress ‘small white monkeys’, an elliptical narrative addressing the language of shame and post-traumatic writing. Sophie will provide a close look at existing literary works, including the poetry of Selima Hill and prose of Jean Rhys, both of which embody the fear and anxiety that typify a state of shamefulness and, in moments of gleeful defiance, gloriously flout it.

The reading will be followed by a discussion on shame and writing with Sophie and writer Daisy Lafarge, and audience questions.
