GLOBALLY-ACCLAIMED poet and ambassador for the spoken word, Benjamin Zephaniah, will be inspiring audiences at the Civic Theatre later this week.
With his inimitable style and unique blend of performance poetry and life stories, he will be at the Chelmsford theatre on Friday April 3.
Zephaniah is one of the most high-profile international authors writing today, with an enormous breadth of appeal. Best known for his performance poetry with a political edge for adults and ground breaking performance poetry for children, he also appeared on Desert Island discs.
His previous novels for Bloomsbury are 'Face' and 'Refugee Boy'. He has also edited an anthology of poems, 'The Bloomsbury Books of Love'.
