Galway 2020 in association with Poetry Ireland and Galway Public Libraries presents.

Poet, author and broadcaster Lemn Sissay will join Edel Coffey for a discussion and reading of his critically-acclaimed autobiography My Name is Why, which has enthralled audiences and readers since publication. His position at the heart of contemporary poetry and his indomitable spirit and brilliance have all been shaped by his own extraordinary journey from foster care into the public care system in the UK.


€15 plus booking fee

While Galway 2020 are extremely disappointed to have made these decisions, public health is our number one priority and we must follow Government advice.
