Fresh off the press in time for the Canadian Writers’ Summit, d’bi.young anitafrika will be reading from her new autobiography, Memoir of An Ugly Duckling: My Life, Art & Method. From growing up in one of the most notorious garrison communities of Kingston Jamaica, to witnessing the evolution of Dub Poetry through one of its pioneers – her mother Anita Stewart – to contributing to radical Black feminist thought through theatre using the Anitafrika Method, d’bi.young’s keynote will focus on the artist’s accountability and responsibility.
This event is part of the Canadian Writers’ Summit (#CWS2018), a super-conference jointly hosted by a cohort of Canadian writer organizations. Members of all of these organizations are especially encouraged to attend, but #CWS2018 welcomes everyone and anyone interested in writing and publishing in Canada.
#CWS2018 takes place June 14–17, 2018 at Harbourfront Centre.
