Lemn Sissay OBE will discuss his best-selling memoir My Name is Why - reflecting on race, family, and the meaning of home.

About this event

Join Lemn Sissay OBE, one of the nation’s best-loved poets, to discuss his No1 best-selling memoir My Name Is Why. Now an award-winning PEN Pinter Prize playwright, performer and BAFTA-nominated broadcaster, Lemn reflects on a childhood spent within the institutional care system where bureaucracy and neglect often superseded love. Having found a powerful creative release in words, Lemn will talk about race, family and the meaning of home.

There will be a book signing after this event.
