This event took place on Wednesday 9th February 2022 (19:30 - 20:30)

This event will be live-captioned.

Poet and writer Yrsa Daley-Ward's words have resonated with hundreds of thousands of readers around the world: through her books of poetry and memoir bone and The Terrible, through her powerful writing for Beyonce on Black Is King and through her always-illuminating Instagram posts. She recently wrote and read a new poem to introduce the COP26 summit.

Re-imagine your new year with Yrsa as she introduces her new book The How; an inspirational mix of poetry, meditations and heartfelt advice, and a lyrical call to discover your inner creativity. She explores how we can remove our filters, and see and feel more of who we really are behind the preconceived notions of propriety and manners we've accumulated with age. She will be joined by Nikita Gill.

You can purchase Yrsa Daley-Ward's book 'The How' from the British Library bookshop here, or borrow from your local library.
