Join us at the Lavender Menace Queer Books Archive for a brilliant event with K Patrick, in conversation with Éadaoín Lynch!

They will discuss K’s incredible debut novel Mrs S, which is a favourite among the Lavender Menace team thanks to the gorgeous prose, exploration of butch identity, and intriguing boarding school setting.

We will also be treated to poetry readings from both K and Éadaoín. We can’t wait to hear their conversation about the overlapping themes in their work.
