Michael Rosen: Migration Stories

Michael Rosen is known around the world for his picture books and poetry full of heart and good humour. In On the Move: Poems About Migration Michael weaves his family’s personal story into his poetry, from his childhood as a first-generation Polish immigrant in London, to the family member who never made it back from the Holocaust. These experiences are brought together with a universal message: ‘You can only do something now.’ Michael joined us at the 2021 Edinburgh International Book Festival for a captivating and heartbreaking event demonstrating the power of poetry, chaired by Dean Atta.
