Join renowned Jamaican poet Lorna Goodison for a reading and discussion about her latest book, Mother Muse, which was shortlisted for the 2021 Derek Walcott Prize for Poetry. Goodison’s first poetry collection to be published in Canada in over nine years, the collection explores Jamaican lore and tradition through a cross-section of women, including two iconic female figures in Jamaican music: Sister Mary Ignatius, who nurtured many of Jamaica’s most gifted musicians and celebrated dancer Anita “Margarita” Mahfood. These important figures lead a collection of formidable scope and intelligence, one that seamlessly blends the personal and the political.

Interviewed by Canisia Lubrin.
