Jean 'Binta' Breeze will be reading from her new collection The Verandah Poems at the University of Reading.
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.
