Hurricanes and wakes: poets Loretta Collins Klobah, Andre Bagoo, and Shivanee Ramlochan, at alice ya
Loretta Collins Klobah, author of The Twelve-Foot Neon Woman, is visiting Trinidad for the first time since winning the OCM Bocas Prize for Poetry in 2012.
On Monday 11 January, the NGC Bocas Lit Fest will host a celebration of her prize-winning book, joined by Trinidadian poets Andre Bagoo (author ofTrick Vessels and BURN) and Shivanee Ramlochan (whose poems appear in the recent anthology Coming Up Hot).
In the work of these three writers, the forces of the natural world contend with human nature, and the supernatural erupts into the everyday.
Join us at Alice Yard, 80 Roberts Street, Woodbrook, Port of Spain, for an evening of startling poems and conversation.
All are invited.
