This literary series pairs established writers with emerging novelists to discuss their work, their engagements with the Caribbean and its diaspora, and their experiences as women writing in and about the region. In this event, distinguished writer Gloria Joseph and debut novelist Naomi Jackson are in conversation, discussing their recent publications. Joseph presents her newest work, a bio/anthology entitled The Wind is Spirit: The Life, Love, and Legacy of Audre Lorde, and Jackson discusses her novel, The Star Side of Bird Hill. The conversation is moderated by Kaiama L. Glover.
