Nerys Williams

A Welsh Republic?

Venue: Courthouse

Wales is one of our nearest neighbours, but how much do we know about it? In her new ‘anti-memoir’, Republic, the Kells-based ‘west-Wales Baudelaire in Dr. Martens’, Nerys Williams, has, in her own words produced, ‘a cross genre-volume examining 1980s and 90s alternative music, political protest and bilingualism in Wales.’ It even comes with its own Spotify list! English and Welsh-language post-punk bands, politics, feminism and family life are thrown together on the page as she questions what constitutes a republic?
