Lemn Sissay: Let the Light Pour In

Sat 29 Jun

For the past decade, BAFTA-nominated award-winning poet Lemn Sissay OBE has composed a short poem as dawn breaks each morning. Life-affirming, witty and full of wonder, these poems chronicle his own battle with the darkness and are fuelled with resilience and defiant joy.

‘How do you do it?’ said night
‘How do you wake up and shine?’
‘I keep it simple,’ said light
‘One day at a time.’

He returns to the New Vic with readings from this new book, Let the Light Pour In plus selections from his old collections.

Don’t miss this opportunity to see one of Britain’s best and most-loved poets performing this uplifting collection!

This evening will also feature a Q&A session followed by a book signing.
