HULL 17 GALA @ Contains Strong Language Literature Festival, Hull


This special event split over two nights is a Gala showcase of the work of the Hull ‘17 Contains Strong Language poets. This is an unbeatable opportunity to hear a diverse range of work from the resident festival writers - including Louise who will be sharing her latest work, GLUE.

Louise Wallwein grew up in the care of nuns from the age of 9. GLUE is a frank and gripping true story of her first meetings with her birth mother, three decades after being put up for adoption. The world as she knew it was turned upside down, and this is how she learnt to fight. 

Born, transferred, placed, discharged, returned. 
What can we learn from a life in care? 

This is a free event.

Performed as part of Contains Strong Language Literature Festival
