Poet, musician, novelist and actor Benjamin Zephaniah is taking to the road again this summer to talk about his life and work to coincide with the release of his autobiography.

The Life and Rhymes of Benjamin Zephaniah: An Autobiography was published by Simon and Schuster on Thursday and charts his upbringing in Birmingham, where he faced racism in the 1960s.

In the book, Benjamin, who moved to the outskirts of Spalding ten years ago, talks candidly of his own time living outside the law and how he broke away from the path his school teachers told him was inevitable.
