Burning Books

Burning Books is a spoken word piece by Jess Green, which she performed supported by her band The Mischief Thieves at Rich Mix in east London. It’s not the sort of thing I usually go for, but I’m glad I made the effort.

The piece is a selection of poems about education: pupils, teachers, librarians and the state of the education system. Inspired by Jess’ own experiences working in schools, it sounds dry but it really wasn’t – quirky and peopled with various interesting characters.
