Jean 'Binta' Breeze: T-junction International Poetry Festival

  • mima, Centre Square Middlesborough, TS1 2AZ

Jean 'Binta' Breeze will be performing at the T-junction International Poetry Festival, a four-day event bringing together poets for an exciting range of readings, performances, master-classes and book-launches.

The Verandah Poems is both a departure and a return for Jean ‘Binta’ Breeze, who left her village in Jamaica to become an internationally renowned Dub poet and storyteller. This is a book of coming home and coming to terms, of contemplation rather than contention – of mellow, musing, edgy poems drawn from the life and lives around her. It is Breeze’s first new collection since Third World Girl: Selected Poems (2011), and is published on her 60th birthday.

Single event ticket: £6.00/£4.00 concessions

All day ticket: £9.00/£6.00 concessions
