Jenni Fagan: I Was Not Meant To Be Here image

Jenni Fagan is no longer able to appear and this event has been cancelled.
According to fellow poet Lemn Sissay, ‘Jenni Fagan is made of fire and spirit’. That burning passion shines through every word of her unforgettable and necessary memoir. Launched today in this special event, Ootlin is Fagan’s account of the displacement and exclusion of a childhood in the care system, and how storytelling helped her survive it to become who she is today. In conversation with Terri White.
