The Black Flamingo

‘I masquerade in make-up and feathers and I am applauded…’

Enjoy a very special live performance of poems and stories from Dean’s debut young adult novel The Black Flamingo!

Discuss how you can embrace your own uniqueness, find your inner strength and gather some top writing and performance tips along the way.

Because sometimes, we all need to take charge, to stand up wearing pink feathers and show ourselves to the world in bold colour!

‘Fiercely told, this is a powerful coming-of-age story told in verse, from one of the UK’s leading poets, Dean Atta. Perfect for fans of Sarah Crossan and Poet X.’
