Voices of the Caribbean: New Poetry
Saturday, November 21, 2015 @ 5:30 am
300 NE Second Ave., Miami, Fl 33132 United States
Carlos Pintado’s Paz Prize-winning collection of poetry Nine Coins/Nueve monedas is a palimpsest of love, fears, dreams, and the intimate landscapes where the author seeks refuge. Colin Channer’s debut poetry collection, Providential, draws on his knowledge of Jamaican culture and on his complex relationship with his father. Vladimir Lucien’s new collection of poetry, Sounding Ground, contains stories of ancestors, immediate family, and history embedded in his native St. Lucia. The poems in Nicholas Laughlin’s The Strange Years of My Life include the narratives of 19th-century travelers and 20th-century anthropologists, spy movies, and astronomical lore.
