An evening of poetry with Loretta Collins Klobah, Andre Bagoo, and Shivanee Ramlochan
Hosted by the NGC Bocas Lit Fest.
Monday 11 January, 2016, 7 pm, at Alice Yard.
Loretta Collins Klobah, author of The Twelve-Foot Neon Woman, is visiting Trinidad for the first time since winning the OCM Bocas Prize for Poetry in 2012. On Monday 11 January, the NGC Bocas Lit Fest will host a celebration of her prize-winning book at Alice Yard, joined by Trinidadian poets Andre Bagoo (author of Trick Vessels and BURN) and Shivanee Ramlochan (whose poems appear in the recent anthology Coming Up Hot). In the work of these three writers, the forces of the natural world contend with human nature, and the supernatural erupts into the everyday.
Join us at Alice Yard, 80 Roberts Street, Woodbrook, Port of Spain, for an evening of startling poems and conversation.
All are invited.
