‘What you leave behind/Won’t leave your mind/But home is where you find it/Home is where you find it.’
In his new, deeply personal poetry collection for children, On the Move, much-loved author Michael Rosen talks to Nicolette Jones about migration and displacement. By turns charming, shocking and heart-breaking, the book is divided into four sections: Michael’s childhood as part of a first-generation Polish family in London; his perception of war as a young boy; his ‘missing’ relatives and the Holocaust; and finally, global experiences of migration. He returns to Kings Place for the second Jewish Book Week Children’s Day after a sell-out appearance last year.
MICHAEL ROSEN is a poet, broadcaster, former Children’s Laureate and a recipient of one of France’s top honours: Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. He has presented BBC Radio 4’s Word of Mouth since 1996
