Poet Roger McGough.

Roger McGough:joinedupwriting at Liverpool Playhouse, City Centre, 7 November 2019, 7:30 pm–10:30 pm, from £15 - Book now

Roger McGough is the author of over a hundred books of poetry for both adults and children, and the latest collection from the Radio 4 regular has been described as ‘exuberant’. Join the Liverpool poet (some might say Poet Laureate of Liverpool) as he launches his brand-new book, joinedupwriting, with an evening of readings and chitchat. The poems in joinedupwriting cover all topics, ranging from forgotten friendships and the idiosyncrasies of family life to the trauma of war and contemporary global politics, so you could say something for everyone. These new poems explore the human experience in all its shades of light and dark but each is tinted with McGough’s signature wit, irreverence and vivacity. This is one of the nation’s favourite poet at his finest, and a great opportunity to hear him read in his home town.
