‘His name is magic, his poems are songs on the street’ The Independent
Lemn Sissay’s life story is nothing less than incredible. At 17, he wrote his first book of poetry, which he sold to the miners and millworkers of Wigan. He has since become one of the nation's best-loved voices, performing for thousands at the 2012 Olympics, and having his poems painted on walls and etched in stone. Lemn will read poems from his latest anthology, amongst other choices.
