Kerry Young & Hannah Lowe: In Conversation
Fri 11 November 2016, 18:00 – 19:30 GMT
Kerry Young and Hannah Lowe read fiction and poems on memory, migration and the lives of the Caribbean-British diaspora. Young’s new novel Show Me A Mountain is part of a trilogy including Gloria and Costa Prize-shortlisted Pao, which searches out Jamaica’s multicultural history and the complexities of a country in the search for independence.
Lowe reads from her new poetry collection Chan, following her Forward Prize-shortlisted debut Chick, exploring the experiences of her Jamaican father and a ship full of dreamers sailing on the SS Ormond from Kingston to Liverpool in 1947.
