Popular local poet Lynn Gerrard to launch new book at Central Library


To celebrate World Book Day and to launch her new book, Lynn Gerrard, aka ‘The Grumbling Gargoyle’, returns to St Helens Central Library this March with an evening of poetry and humour, as part of the new Cultural Hubs – Arts in Libraries programme.

Packed with Lynn’s trademark mixture of black and comedic poems and stories, the evening promises to be an excellent event, ideal for fans of poetry and dark humour, with readings from her new collection of unique and insightful verse entitled ‘Musings and Mischief’.

One audience member at last year’s library show said: “Lynn Gerrard is a poet at the top of her game, go see her before her career goes stratospheric.”

The event on 3 March at 7pm is suitable for adults and young people aged 16 and above (contains some strong language). Visit www.culturalhubs.eventbrite.co.uk, call into any St Helens library or phone 01744 677446 to book your free tickets.

Other libraries across the borough will be holding various arts and crafts sessions to celebrate this year’s World Book Day on 3 March. Get in touch with your local library for further information. Find contact details at www.sthelens.gov.uk/libraries.

Cultural Hubs is an Arts Council England funded programme of work which allows us to enliven St Helens’ network of 13 Libraries with performances, plays, gigs, workshops, courses, events and exhibitions.

This fifth programme sees the team again working with local people to choose what they want to see in the borough’s libraries as well as a focus on working with local artists to exhibit their work.
