Lemn Sissay OBE – Let The Light Pour In

Thursday 16 May, 4:00pm-5:00pm
Fowey Parish Church
16.00

For the past decade, Lemn Sissay 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 dark and are fuelled by resilience and defiant joy. Let the Light Pour In is a collection of the best of these poems, and a book celebrating this morning practice.

Lemn is a BAFTA-nominated, award-winning writer and broadcaster. He has authored collections of poetry and plays, and his memoir My Name Is Why was a number-one Sunday Times bestseller. He was the official poet of the 2012 London Olympics and chancellor of the University of Manchester from 2015 until 2022. He is a trustee of the Foundling Museum, and a fellow of the Royal Society of Literature. In 2010 he received an MBE, and 2021 saw him being awarded an OBE for services to literature and charity. In 2019 he was awarded the PEN Pinter Prize. He presents BBC Radio 4’s Lemn Sissay Is The One and Only. Last year, Lemn was granted Freedom of the City of London. He is British and Ethiopian.
