An evening of Caribbean words, stories, food and ideas

October 27, 6:30 PM8:30 PM BST

Pay what you can

Featuring Celeste Mohammed, Canisia Lubrin, Barbara Jenkins, Karen Lord, and Celia Sorhaindo

A literary showcase featuring five of the Caribbean’s most exciting contemporary voices. With Celeste Mohammed, Canisia Lubrin, Barbara Jenkins, Karen Lord, and Celia Sorhaindo. Chaired by Nicholas Laughlin, Bocas Lit Fest Festival Director. Presented in partnership with the National Centre for Writing, Norwich.

Writing across genres from novels to short stories, memoirs to poetry, these five writers from four Caribbean countries represent a diversity of voices, ideas, and linguistic backgrounds. The Caribbean they explore in their books may be partly familiar and partly strange, and their stories and themes tackle universal questions: family and history, identity and love, boundary crossings of all kinds, and the purpose of writing itself.

Join us for a lively evening of stories, poetry, ideas, conversation — and food!
