Michael Rosen: Many Different Kinds of Love

Wednesday 23 June, 6.30pm.

Michael Rosen shares his experience of nearly dying, as he battled Covid-19, in a collection of poetry, emails from his wife Emma and moving letters from nurses from the intensive care ward where he lay in a coma. In Many Different Kinds of Love: A Story of Life, Death and the NHS, Michael reflects on the trauma and identity shift of being critically ill, and on caring neighbours, loved ones, and NHS staff.
