Swindon Festival of Literature
Wed 9 May
MICHAEL ROSEN – on childhood, self-discovery, and Literature!
Presented in association with Arts and Humanities Research Council
What makes us who we are, nature or nurture, genes or environment? What influence do our parents, our siblings and our family history have on who we become?
Prolific award-winning author, broadcaster, former Children’s Laureate and currently Professor of Children’s Literature at Goldsmiths University, Michael Rosen grew up in the suburbs of London but had worldwide family influences in his home. Despite these, Michael followed his own journey of radical self-discovery, writing and performing in experimental theatre, and getting arrested during the movements of ’68. His memoir, So They Call You Pisher, puts us in the picture.
