Jean 'Binta' Breeze: A reading at the University of Reading

  • University of Reading, Room HumSS G27 Whiteknights Road Earley, RG6 6AH United Kingdom (map)

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.
