Lemn Sissay Returns AgainBook Shambles
Lemn is back for part two after a shortened first (that was actually his second) visit to Book Shambles. Robin and Lemn, with Natalie Haynes a super sub for Josie Long, carry on their conversation about ‘My Name is Why‘ and how it has connected with readers in the wider world. All mixed in with tales of Lenny Henry, Julian Barnes and Welsh Miners Workers Libraries.
Support the podcast at patreon.com/bookshambles to get extended editions of each and every episode. 10 bonus minutes await pledgers this week.
Lemn will be joining Robin at the Royal Albert Hall on May 17th 2020 as part of Sea Shambles, a huge variety spectacular show along with Steve Backshall, Helen Czerski, British Sea Power, Josie Long and many more! Tickets at cosmicshambles.com/seashambles
