He will be performing a selection of new and favourite poems from his recent Canongate collection, Gold from the Stone, along with other works that deal with themes of adoption and care.

Lemn will be supported by competition-winning writers from Cultureword performing a series of short monologues about family and adoption.

The performances will be followed by an afterparty with music and an open mic stage.
