Renaissance One and Black Cultural Archives (BCA) present internationally-renowned poet Jean 'Binta' Breeze who marks her 60th birthday with readings from her brand new book, The Verandah Poems and lively conversation.
‘The third world girl, at home for a while, sets these attractive poems in rural Jamaica. The easy-going voice talks of personal development, celebrates friends and family, comments on mortality, freedom, gender and class. The poet is examining, subtly, a more or less contented return to where her life began.’ Mervyn Morris, Poet Laureate of Jamaica
Event supported by Bloodaxe
