    Don’t miss your chance to get a copy of?POOR?with your ticket (RRP £9.99).

    Presented by Theatre Peckham and Penguin Live.

    Join Caleb Femi as he celebrates the publication of his book POOR, and hear him deliver his poems with the heart and grit he’s known for, as he shares his love letter to the endz. Caleb will discuss what inspired him, exploring the trials, tribulations, dreams and joys of young Black boys in twenty-first century Peckham.

    In POOR, Caleb contemplates the ways in which they are informed by the built environment of concrete walls and gentrifying neighbourhoods that form their stage, and tells a coded, near-mythical history of the personalities and sagas of his South London youth, paying tribute to the rappers and artists who spoke to their lives.

    ‘Oh my God, he’s just stirring me. Destroying me’?Michaela Coel

    Caleb will be interviewed by BBC London’s arts correspondent Brenda Emmanus, and two of Theatre Peckham’s young poets will join to respond to some of Caleb’s work.

    Caleb Femi is a poet and director raised on the North Peckham Estate in London. Caleb has written and directed short films for the BBC and Channel 4, and poems for Tate Modern, the Royal Society for Literature, St Paul's Cathedral, the BBC, the Guardian and more. He has been featured in the Dazed 100 list of the next generation shaping youth culture. From 2016 to 2018, he served as the Young People's Laureate for London. He recently wrote the liner material for Kano's 2019 album Hoodies All Summer. This is his first book.

    • Poor

    • A NEW STATESMAN AND FINANCIAL TIMES BOOK OF THE YEAR

      'Restlessly inventive, brutally graceful, startlingly beautiful . . . a landmark debut' Guardian
      'Oh my God, he's just stirring me. Destroying me' Michaela Coel
      'A poet of truth and rage, heartbreak and joy' Max Porter
      'It's simply stunning. Every image is a revelation' Terrance Hayes

      What is it like to grow up in a place where the same police officer who told your primary school class they were special stops and searches you at 13 because 'you fit the description of a man' - and where it is possible to walk two and a half miles through an estate of 1,444 homes without ever touching the ground?

      In Poor, Caleb Femi combines poetry and original photography to explore the trials, tribulations, dreams and joys of young Black boys in twenty-first century Peckham. He contemplates the ways in which they are informed by the built environment of concrete walls and gentrifying neighbourhoods that form their stage, writes a coded, near-mythical history of the personalities and sagas of his South London youth, and pays tribute to the rappers and artists who spoke to their lives.

      Above all, this is a tribute to the world that shaped a poet, and to the people forging difficult lives and finding magic within it. As Femi writes in one of the final poems of this book: 'I have never loved anything the way I love the endz.'
