Lorna Goodison Poetry Reading

October 02 at 6pm

Outdoor Stage, October 2 at 6pm ET

Don’t miss a reading from influential, internationally renowned Jamaican poet Lorna Goodison. Goodison is the author of 14 books of poetry, in addition to short story and essay collections. Her significant body of work is enchanting, humorous, intelligent and offers an authentic voice on subjects of culture, family and heritage. Goodison’s latest poetry collection, Mother Muse, is the first to be published in Canada in nine years. Seamlessly weaving together the personal with the political, Goodison returns with an evocative set of poems that tell the forgotten stories of history. Mother Muse is a collection based on Jamaican lore and tradition focusing on two iconic female figures in Jamaican music: Sister Mary Ignatius and Anita ‘Margarita’ Mahfood.

Duration: 30 minutes

This event will be presented as part of the free, outdoor events at #FestofAuthors22, taking place on the stage in the park and open to the general public. Find the venue on the Festival map here.
