An evening with Len Pennie in conversation with Karen Dunbar

Tik Tok sensation Len Pennie launches her new book of poetry Poyums live in store in conversation with one of Scotland's best known comedy actors  Karen Dunbar.

Whether she's writing letters to her younger self, advocating for women's rights or adapting fairy tales to process an abusive relationship, Len's voice is bold, unashamedly frank and unmistakably hers.

The poems in this collection, in turns funny, furious and heartbreaking, announce a formidable new talent. Moving deftly between English and Scots, poyumsis as approachable as it is affecting.

Karen Dunbar is one of Scotland’s best-known comedy actors. Starting off in the sketch show Chewin’ the Fat, she then went on to star in her own show, The Karen Dunbar Show, which received 4 Golden Rose nominations. Karen has trod the boards in everything from Glasgow Panto to West End Classics, performed Burns, Shakespeare, done stand up and DJ-ed in New York, and in 2014 she opened the Commonwealth Games in front of one billion viewers. From Oran Mor to the National Theatre, Karen has captivated audiences with mix of comedy, music and acting talents. And if that wasn’t enough she also runs a social enterprise called Beats Therapy (as seen on BBC 1 Scotland’s ‘Karen Dunbar’s Schoool of Rap’, available on iPlayer)
