Poetry and Fiction Reading May 9th, 2007

Spread the love

Two major authors from the Anglophone Caribbean—Jamaican poet, prose writer, and painter Lorna Goodison (Tamarind Season; I Am Becoming My Mother, Goldengrove) and Kittitian novelist Caryl Phillips (A Distant Shore; Cambridge, Dancing in the Dark)—present autobiographical and historical pieces from their formidable bodies of work, selections of which will be included in Review 74 (Caribbean and Caribbean Diaspora Writing and Arts). Goodison’s and Phillips’s works explore their African heritage, the legacy of the Atlantic slave-trade, and themes relating to language, the notion of home, and filial relationships. Copies of the authors’ books will be available for sale during and after the program. Reception to follow.
