The prolific and hilarious writer Michael Rosen brings his own childhood to light in his new memoir, So They Call You Pisher! As a child, he dreamt of a socialist revolution—until his parents decided to leave the party in 1957. In this event, Rosen discusses his career as a political campaigner and an acclaimed children’s poet, and how he fused the two in his collections of socialist fairy tales, Workers’ Tales: Socialist Fairy Tales, Fables, and Allegories from Great Britain, and Reading and Rebellion: An Anthology of Radical Writing for Children.

Join us for an evening of laughter, language, and politics with one of the today’s most charismatic living storytellers.
