Bask in an evening celebrating the publication of Nathalie Abi-Ezzi’s Needle Around her Neck, featuring readings from the collection, a late-night viewing of the exhibition, and book signings.

About

For #FirstThursdays this July, we’re opening the doors to the gallery to celebrate the publication of Needle Around her Neck, a collection of poems penned by Nathalie Abi-Ezzi that takes its cue from the multiplicity of experiences shared during the Traces: Stories of Migration project, weaving more recent migrant stories into the history of the East End rag trade. 

Bringing together communal feelings, dreams, imaginings, and the things we love and lose through displacement, Needle Around her Neck is an ode to the stories and people that make East London what it is today. 

Alongside a late-night viewing of the Traces: Stories of Migration exhibition, expect to hear a selection of readings from Nathalie, chat to some familiar faces from the Traces project, and get the chance to have your copy signed by the author herself.  

The Nunnery Café will be open and serving snacks, home-made cakes and refreshments for the entirety of the evening. 

Free - Drop in event – no booking required!
