‘I decided that I’d start to try to acknowledge the strength it had taken for me to get through, and over, my upbringing and become the woman I am today.’ Kerry Hudson grew up in a succession of council estates and B&Bs in some of the UK’s poorest towns. In her timely and heart-breaking memoir, Lowborn, she recounts her experiences of growing up in poverty in the 80’s and 90’s, returning to each of the places she was raised in – from Aberdeen to Canterbury – to see the effects of Tory austerity in the present day.

Kerry is the author of two award-winning novels, Tony Hogan Bought Me An Ice-Cream Float Before He Stole My Ma and Thirst. She will be in conversation with Naomi Frisby.
