London Is The Place For Me: Rum Shop Lime And Book Launch - The Poems Of Sam Selvon

In an informal limin' style, a guest speaker selects and talks about a person from Trinidad or Tobago.

Susheila Nasta, the founder and Editor of groundbreaking publication Wasafiri, shares her memories of Sam Selvon and discusses the impact of his writing and his powerful capturing of Caribbean voices and experiences of post-Windrush life in London through pivotal writing including his novel The Lonely Londoners.

Susheila's talk is followed by a book launch of The Poems of Sam Selvon, which bring to the fore little known poems and demonstrate the author's gift for poetry as well as prose. Presented by Cane Arrow Press, a new publisher dedicated to publishing Trinidad and Tobago authors.

Part of a free festival, celebrating of 50 years of Trinidad and Tobago independence.
