Byron Writers Festival is thrilled to welcome Festival 2018 favourite guest Lemn Sissay back to Byron Bay for My Name is Why. This is Lemn’s life story: a story of neglect and determination, misfortune and hope, cruelty and triumph.
Lemn Sissay will be reading from his memoir, reflecting on a childhood in care, self-expression and Britishness, and in doing so exploring the institutional care system, race, family and the meaning of home.
Infused with all the lyricism and power you would expect from one of the UK’s best-loved poets, this moving, frank and timely event is the result of a life spent asking questions, and a celebration of the redemptive power of creativity.
Saturday 16 November 2019, 6pm - 8pm
Banksia Room, Elements of Byron Resort
144 Bayshore Drive, BYRON BAY
