Burning Eye Presents Leena Norms at London Book Fair April 5th 2022 12pm in the Poetry Corner
Celebrating ten years of publishing, Burning Eye publisher Clive Birnie will read a short selection of poems from key 2022 titles and introduce LBF 2020 Book Vlogger of the Year Leena Norms who will read from her debut poetry collection Bargain Bin Rom-Com which will be published by Burning Eye in July.
Bargain Bin Rom-Com is the first collection of poems by Leena Norms. From the politics of ice-cream to the permission slip you didn’t know you needed, this is a tongue-in-cheek look at living on a planet that is filled with both doom and glitter.
“Astute, funny, charming, hopeful, delicate, clever. I would go as far as to say that I would enjoy being in an apocalypse with Leena.”Cathy Rentzenbrink
“Leena’s poems are a pocket full of sunshine but with plenty of shadow and shade too- funny, warm and relatable – this is a special kind of best friend book that will stick with readers.”Laura Dockrill
