Poetry with Jenny Mitchell
July 30, 6:30 PM – 8:30 PMFree
Join award-winning poet Jenny Mitchell for a summer reading in beautiful Thompson’s Park
Described as ‘powerful and deeply moving’, Jenny Mitchell’s poetry brings to life a cast of ‘silenced women’ through poetry.
Her work tells stories of enslavement and empowerment, of journeys between the Caribbean and Britain, and celebrates the joyful, healing power of stories.
Join Jenny in beautiful Thompson’s Park for a reading of her work, hosted by Roberto Pastore.
Refreshments will be available courtesy of Lufkin Coffee.
Praise for Jenny Mitchell:
“Her tactile, cinematic poems leap into life, and their rich language lifts at times into magic realist flights of imagination. This collection vibrates with heart.”
– Maggie Butt
