This is Lemn’s life story: a story of neglect and determination, misfortune and hope, cruelty and triumph.

He will read from his Sunday Times bestselling memoir, reflecting on a childhood in care, self-expression and Britishness, and in doing so exploring the institutional care system, race, family and the meaning of home.

Infused with all the lyricism and power you would expect from one of the nation’s best-loved poets, this moving, frank and timely event is the result of a life spent asking questions, and a celebration of the redemptive power of creativity.

Followed by a Q&A.

Written and performed by Lemn Sissay.
