About this event

As part of their 20th anniversary celebrations, publisher flipped eye are holding a series of festival appearances, digital events and a virtual bookshop tour. Bookbag and Africa Writes – Exeter are very proud to be a part of these celebrations, and to host Louisa Adjoa Parker who'll be launching her new poetry collection She Can Still Sing. After reading from the collection, Louisa will join us to (virtually) talk about her work.

Of English and Ghanaian heritage, Louisa Adjoa Parker has been commended by the National Poetry Competition and twice been shortlisted by the Bridport Prize. She makes her flipped eye début with She Can Still Sing (out on Thursday 17th June 2021), a celebratory pamphlet that hums with the knowledge of what it is to have known pain, but still remember the pathways of joy.

flipped eye has won global critical acclaim during its twenty year history, playing a key role in developing poets such as Inua Ellams, Malika Booker, Miriam Nash, Nick Makoha and Warsan Shire. As they say, they run a "lean, reader-focussed, writer-loving, boat-rocking support system for culture that matters." Amen to that.

Hosting the event are Bookbag, a new independent bookshop for Exeter, and Africa Writes - Exeter.
