Poet Catherine Scott is coming to East Riding Libraries

Wed, 27 Nov 2019

Popular local poet and performer Catherine Scott will be visiting several East Riding Libraries for a series of free events.

Catherine will be reading from her new book of poetry, ‘A Woman with a Grudge’. The events promise to be irreverent, witty, funny and moving.

Catherine is a highly regarded performance poet and playwright who is well known and very popular across Hull and the East Riding. She performs regularly at events across the region, from the East Riding Festival of Words to guest poet at ‘The Ropery’ in Barton. She also shares her love of the written word by delivering poetry workshops in local schools and to the wider public.

Catherine has written three poetry compilations; ‘A Woman with a View’, ‘Add Verse to Therapy’ and ‘The Brazen Maiden from Hull’.

She has been described as ‘Hull’s answer to Pam Ayres’ and expresses her feelings and observations of life through poetry, embroidering the truth to add a bit of comedy. Catherine’s original poetry will make people laugh out loud and bring a tear to their eye. 

She also conducted a sellout workshop in the recent East Riding Festival of Words.

The events are free to attend, but places should be booked with a member of the team at the relevant library.
