This is a seated event.
Lemn Sissay MBE is a BAFTA nominated international prize-winning writer. His best-selling novel ‘My Name Is Why’ tells his life story: one of neglect and determination, misfortune and hope, cruelty and triumph. Written with all the lyricism and power you would expect from one of the nation’s best-loved poets, the memoir has received rich critical acclaim, with The Guardian branding it “searing and unforgettable”. Lemn will perform a special reading at Fringe By The Sea, reflecting on a childhood in care, self-expression and Britishness.
Venue: Belhaven Big Top
