This month’s pick
For our February selection, the LPW Book Club is going to be reading born bad by debbie tucker green.
Why did we pick this?
‘born bad’ (yes, written in lowercase!) is a modern classic for a reason. debbie tucker green (who also writes her name in lower case) uses language in exciting and unconventional ways that uses theatrical form to the fullest.
This play is also a masterclass in plot – as the story unfolds, and our understanding of the family shifts, the revelations about what’s truly going on hit in dramatic and powerful ways.
How does it work?
All you need to do is read the play and come on over to our Members Facebook Group to join the discussion! Book club threads will be marked with the hashtag #bookclub, so it will be easy to find the discussion.
When does it start?
We’re giving you two weeks to read the play, and then discussion will start at lunchtime (1pm) on Friday 16 February 2018. Don’t worry if you haven’t finished the play by then, we’ll be starting at the beginning with our discussion, so there will still be a lot that you can get out of it.
However, we can’t be held liable for any spoilers, so if this is something that will bother you, probably best to finish the play before the book club starts.
We’ll be discussing the play in the Facebook Group throughout the rest of the month, so if there’s a question or a topic you want to explore with a group of writers, this is the perfect opportunity.

1 thought on “LPW Online Book Club – born bad”
What does writing names in lowercase change? Is that an attempt to change the world of women?
Removing the curtain in the theatre was supposed to be an avant-garde progress. Was it? Or was it cheaper because fabric is expensive?
