Jamaica Kincaid: Write Out of Defiance

According to the New York Times, Antiguan-American novelist, essayist and academic Jamaica Kincaid has a ‘poet’s understanding of how politics and history, private and public events, overlap and blur’. This summer, five of her books will be republished, including her 1985 debut Annie John, The Autobiography of My Mother and short story collection, At the Bottom of the River. Join us for a celebration hosted by Jackie Kay, who has written a new introduction to Annie John.
