THIS EVENT WAS ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED FOR 12 JANUARY.

Poet and writer Yrsa Daley-Ward's words have resonated with hundreds of thousands of readers around the world: through her books of poetry and memoirs, through her powerful writing for Beyonce on Black Is King and through her always-illuminating Instagram posts. She recently wrote and read a new poem to introduce the COP26 summit.
Re-imagine your new year with Yrsa as she introduces her new book The How; an inspirational mix of poetry, meditations and heartfelt advice, and a lyrical call to discover your inner creativity. She explores how we can remove our filters, and see and feel more of who we really are behind the preconceived notions of propriety and manners we've accumulated with age.
Yrsa is in conversation with fellow poet Nikita Gill
