Event description

Description

Shivanee Ramlochan launches her debut poetry collection, Everyone Knows I Am a Haunting, with readings, and conversation with Vahni Capildeo.

"Ramlochan’s poetry slays whoever would force an ‘identity’ on it. It alchemizes the roles of grandmothers, abortionists, labourers, clerks, dancers, policemen, cousins, rapists into the greatest intensity of human. The world fucked the Caribbean archipelago, where European-derived shepherdesses and pre-Abrahamic Lilith now wander as peers among manifold beings. The music is consonantal, full of pleasure/pain. Rich as a García Márquez novel, these are uncompromising conversations, intimacy wrestling survival." —Vahni Capildeo, author of Measures of Expatriation

Wine and nibbles will be served, books will be on sale, and all are welcome!
