Michael Rosen

Much-loved author, poet and broadcaster Michael Rosen, author of more than 200 books for children and adults, asks what it means to play with a Dickens plot, as he did in 'Bah! Humbug!' and 'Unexpected Twist!' and considers Dickens's life when he was a child. He also reads some of his funniest poems and shares wisdom from his latest 'Book of Play', in which he delves into the history of play via puns, nonsense, improvisation and toys. This event celebrates the 150th anniversary of Charles Dickens's death. Suitable for all ages.
