So They Call You Pisher

Rosen Image

Join Michael Rosen, the well-known children's writer, poet, performer and broadcaster, as he reflects on a career both varied and long.   

A favourite with young people for books such as You Wait Till I'm Older Than You and Bah! Humbug! Michael will also talk about his recent memoir, So They Call You Pisher, which recalls his Jewish Communist parents, growing up in London just after the war and the kind of education he got in school – and out.

With a bit of The Disappearance of Emile Zola thrown in, expect an afternoon that is wide-ranging and fun!

Speaker: Michael Rosen in conversation with Alastair Niven

Duration: 1 hour
