Michael Rosen is a British children’s novelist and poet and was British Children’s Laureate from June 2007 to June 2009. He is well known for promoting children’s literature and has received numerous awards for his work in this area.

In 2007 he was awarded an Honorary D.Litt at the University of Exeter. In September 2014 he will take up a new role at Goldsmiths, University of London as a Professor in the Department of Education Studies responsible for developing courses in children’s literature.

Michael Rosen has explored his family’s life during the period 1946 – 1969 through his writings – poetry, drama and story. In this talk at the University of Exeter, he will present some of this with a commentary showing how his parents never fully accepted suburban life, while he and his brother found and enjoyed the local dissenting culture that had eluded their parents.
