Event description

Description

Doors, 7:30pm

Double bill featuring one of the nation’s best loved poets, Lemn Sissay MBE, and DJ and acclaimed writer Dave Haslam. Lemn will be reading poems and exclusively discussing My Name is Why, his forthcoming memoir exploring his early life in the institutional care system, race, family and the meaning of home (published by Canongate, August 2019).

Dave will be reading from his recent autobiography Sonic Youth Slept On My Floor, and his new work A Life in 35 Boxes, a ‘mini-book’ about collecting. Together they will be in discussion (expect entertainment, insight, emotion, and a few unexpected diversions) with an opportunity for an audience Q&A too.

The evening will conclude with a book signing session.

Presented in partnership with the Creative Manchester at The University of Manchester
