Join Lorna Goodison, the award-winning Poet Laureate of Jamaica, as she reads from her first-ever collection of essays. Interweaving the personal and political in Redemption Ground, she explores her love of poetry, the legacy of colonialism, racism and social justice, authenticity and the enduring power of friendship.
Her extraordinary cast of characters and range of influences will delight: from finding a black hairdresser in Paris and crying at a movie in Jamaica, to having a life-changing epiphany in New York’s Bottom Line Club or drinking tea with an old friend and new strangers in Marylebone High Street.
Come and meet a wonderfully talented writer in conversation with American poet Michael Kelleher, Director of the Windham-Campbell Prizes at Yale University.
