lemn derry eventLemn Sissay: Talk and Poetry Reading, as part of Disobey Gravity
Thursday 18th April, 12.30-1.30pm
Verbal Arts Centre, Derry/Londonderry, BT48 6PU

Those in Northern Ireland or anyone heading over to sample what's on offer as part of Derry's Capital of Culture year in 2013 can catch poet, playwright and The Reader Organisation's patron Lemn Sissay at this free event at the Verbal Arts Centre next week.

Fresh from his inspiring RISE events in Wigan earlier this week, Lemn will be reading some of his work and talking about why he loves reading as part of the Disobey Gravity programme. A year long project, Disobey Gravity imagines a world where people love to read, where a culture of sharing literature and stories can be created in the city of Derry and acts to  transform its surroundings.

If you missed out seeing Lemn in Wigan, here's your opportunity to witness the power of his poetry in action, all for free.
