Here Come The Girls – Interview with Author Amy Kean

This week I had a chat with one of my favourite authors Amy Kean just before the launch of her new book House Of Weeds

“Step into a world of deliciously wild characters: a group of outcasts who have only their rebellion in common. Weeds and humans overlap in this prickly-sweet fusion of poetry and illustration, painting tales of society’s outsiders.  House of Weeds is the story of these rebel humans. An illustrated poetry collection from Amy Charlotte Kean and Jack Wallington that gives a megaphone to the weird, restless and unruly. The battles they faced and the love they crafted for themselves”

You can join the Virtual Book Launch on Sunday 17th May at 5pm – Ticket price (£5.80) comes in the form of a donation to Refuge’s Covid-19 appeal.
