Lemn Sissay

Lemn Sissay

We are delighted to welcome Lemn Sissay back to Faversham to perform from his latest poetry collection Let the Light Pour In. Lemn begins every day by writing a short poem as dawn breaks. Life-affirming, witty and a way of starting each day with an act of hope, he has collected some of these poems, going back 10 years, into one volume. Come listen, be entertained and inspired.

Lemn is a BAFTA-nominated, award-winning writer and broadcaster. He is the author of Sunday Times bestselling memoir My Name Is Why, numerous collections of poetry, plays for stage and radio, and in 2019 he was awarded the PEN Pinter Prize. In 2021 Lemn received an OBE for services to literature and charity.
