About this event

Dead Dad Jokes is an unflinching take on family, loss and trauma. There is nothing quiet about Schminkey’s debut. Every page is raw, honest and unforgettable. Dead Dad Jokes brings the impact of addiction into crisp focus while also shattering our simplistic TV preconceptions about it. Ollie never lets the reader slip into the easy sadness of cliche – instead they guide us through the realities and contradictions of losing someone you love and of death – reminding us that they need not be one and the same.

About The Author:

They are the author of two chapbooks, as well as the full-length collection Dead Dad Jokes (Button Poetry, 2021). You can find them touring nationally, making music, or playing with their cat Pete, who is always trying to eat things he shouldn’t.
