Penny Pepper at Derby Book Festival

  • Deda Chapel Street Cathedral Quarter, Derby DE1 3GU (map)

A genre-defying and versatile writer, Penny Pepper’s work is a mixture of the quirky and the lewd, with a focus on examination of difference and identity. Her memoir First in The World Somewhere charts her early years in London as a young, passionate punky poet, singer and disability activist.

Penny regularly appears on Newsnight, Sky News, and the BBC as well as writing for columns for The Guardian.
