Literary Lunch with Jude Simpson
At most of our Literary Lunches, you’ll find our very own poet-in-residence, Jude Simpson, in interviewing mode, chatting with our guest authors and teasing out their best stories.
This time, however, the tables have turned, and Jude is the one in the limelight!
Jude Simpson – singer, songwriter, comedian and poet!
A skilled writer and engaging performer, Jude’s mix of linguistic dexterity and quirky humour leave audiences smiling, laughing and occasionally hungry. Her songs and poems inspire and delight with her warm, witty observations of life.
Performing throughout the UK, especially in East Anglia, she has gigged at the Edinburgh Festival, Glastonbury, numerous literature festivals and cabaret and comedy clubs. And has won national poetry slams at Cheltenham, Edinburgh, Swindon and London.
“She has words on a string like so many yoyos and her lines sparkle with wit and panache” – The Scotsman.
We are delighted that Jude will be joining us to celebrate the launch of her new book, “Shambolic Mammal”, a collection of some of Jude’s favourite poems. Complete with out-takes, personal reflections, ruminative footnotes and performance advice, this little treat will bring a smile to the face of word-lovers and apple-eaters everywhere.
