"Jailbirds" - An audience with author Mim Skinner (early bird ticket)
Friday 7 June 2019, 7pm (doors open at 6:30)
at St Peters Church, Kensington Park Rd, W11 2PN
Hot off the press, join us for an exclusive talk with Mim Skinner, author of Jailbirds - Lessons from a Women's Prison. As eye-opening and funny as it is engrossing and heart-breaking, this is the first account of the unique world that exists inside a UK high-security women's prison and the stories of the women imprisoned there.
“When I started working in prisons, part of me expected to find this pantomime cast of characters - violent offenders, neglectful mothers and incurable psychopaths if you read one newspaper, or cruel officers, the evil establishment and sexist judges if you read another. Instead I met wonderful, funny, brave and resilient people with complicated stories – on both sides of the bars.”
Tickets include a glass of wine (or soft drink) on arrival. Early bird tickets available until Monday 27th May. Tickets are £20 thereafter.
Copies of the book will be available to buy on the evening.
