Jackie Kay

Jackie Kay’s poems present us with a range of viewpoints including those of the moon: The Moon at Knowle Hill, a balloon: Way down below in the streets of Paris and the different rooms in a house: No 115 Dreams. Enjoy Jackie’s beautiful lilting voice as she reads her poems aloud.

Jackie was awarded an MBE in 2006 for her services to poetry.
