New Thumbprint – Dad’s Slideshow by Di Slaney

Dad’s Slideshow is a poetry sequence charting a family’s ancestry over a lifetime and includes a range of different voices – vividly captured in carefully constructed forms.

Di Slaney’s deft and evocative poems are a living testimony of what survives long after the events recorded in a family album. She writes movingly about relationships, tracing links to the past which informs our understanding of the present.

Join us for poetry, Barra Brith and a glass of squash (or wine) at the launch of Di Slaney’s debut pamphlet, Dad’s Slideshow.

“The writing is always precise and lyrical, and its formal qualities remarkable. A wonderful debut” – Hannah Lowe

At the launch Di will read from her collection and there will be a display of the original photographs.

Waterstones Nottingham, 1/5 Bridlesmith Gate, Nottingham, NG1 2GR
