In our second episode of Season 7, Monica Minott reads from her OCM Bocas Prize longlisted collection, Zion Roses, published by Peepal Tree Press. Velma Pollard calls these poems “a maturity of construction, of matching thought with word and rhythm”. Monica will be in conversation with guest host, bookstagrammer and reviewer Akilah White.
Season 7 of Bios & Bookmarks: “A Change Is Gonna Come” is named for the anthemic 1964 Sam Cooke classic, and focuses on social justice in our region and beyond; how can we work to build a better world?
