Event description

Description

Acclaimed children's writer, poet, educationalist and broadcaster Michael Rosen will be at the shop to present his latest book So They Call You Pisher! (Verso), a memoir of his childhood and early adulthood. Born into a Jewish Communist family in the East End of London in 1946, Rosen's early life was one of Party meetings, radical camping holidays, revolutionary hopes and disillusionments, and of political self-discovery. Warm and witty, his memoir gives a vivid account of growing up on the left in post-war Britain.

Michael Rosen will be in conversation with the medical writer and journalist Anne Karpf, author of, most recently, The School of Life's How to Age.
