Black Cultural Archives and Renaissance One presents Jean ‘Binta’ Breeze: The Verandah Poems

Friday 11 March, 6.00pm-7.30pm

Internationally renowned Jamaican poet Jean ‘Binta’ Breeze marks her 60th birthday with the publication of her new poetry collection The Verandah Poems for International Women’s Month.

A recipient of an MBE in 2012 for her services to Poetry and often cited as a ‘one-woman festival’, her words carry powerful political and personal messages. Join her on this special occasion where she will give readings from from her book and meet the audience in conversation and celebration.

‘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

The event is supported by Bloodaxe.
