Bad Language is delighted to bring Jess Green to Manchester for her book tour of the acclaimed ‘A Self Help Guide To Being In Love With Jeremy Corbyn’.
Jess Green is BBC Poetry Slam Champion 2018, and her poem Dear Mr Gove has clocked up a third of a million views on YouTube.
Her first collection Burning Books was taken from her spoken word show set in an inner city secondary school suffering the cuts and blows of the Coalition government.
Her second collection A Self Help Guide To Being In Love With Jeremy Corbyn (Burning Eye Books) sees her falling head over heels in love with Jeremy Corbyn and his “raw Communist sex appeal”.
A Self Help Guide To Being In Love With Jeremy CorbynWe’re holding this at the International Anthony Burgess Foundation. Let’s give Jess a brilliant Manchester audience. Advance tickets are £7.
