Poet: Kwame Dawes
November 8, 2013, 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Poets House, 10 River Terrace, New York, NY

Poet Kwame Dawes introduces a new generation of African poets whose work reflects the complex cosmopolitanism of contemporary African societies and cultures that remain fully traditional yet excitingly engaged with modernity. He gives a brief history of modern African poetry, with special attention to the work of Ghanaian poet Kofi Awoonor, and discusses the work of rising poets including Warsan Shire of Somalia, Nick Makoha of Uganda, and Tsitsi Jaji of Zimbabwe. $10, $7 for students and seniors, and free to Poets House members.
