An evening with Stu Hennigan

July 13, 2022 @ 18:30 21:00

Join us in the shop for an evening with Stu Hennigan to chat about his first non-fiction title Ghost Signs: Poverty and the Pandemic. Ghost Signs is an eyewitness account of the author’s experiences delivering essential food and medicine to some of Leeds’ most vulnerable communities in the early stages of the pandemic during the first lockdown in 2020. It’s a timely reminder of how life was for most of us during those unprecedented times, and paints a blistering portrait of the hardships being endured by deprived communities even before the current cost of living crisis hit. It’s a visceral piece of reportage that is already drawing comparisons with George Orwell’s classic work The Road To Wigan Pier.

Stu Hennigan is a writer, poet and musician from the north of England, currently based in Leeds. His short fiction has appeared in Lune Journal and the anthology The Middle Of A Sentence, and his poetry has been published in multiple places online, including at Visual Verse. He is currently working on a new novel as well as several other shorter creative projects. Ghost Signs is his first full-length published work. He also works as the Senior Librarian For Stock and Reader Development at Leeds Libraries.
