Literary and Musical Evening with Dany Laferrière

Literary and Musical Evening

Organised in partnership with Festival America, the British Library and the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), this French Caribbean evening will be an exceptional opportunity to hear Montreal-based Haitian writer Dany Laferrière, elected to the prestigious Académie Française in 2015, talk about his writing and in particular The Enigma of the Return (MacLehose Press).

The talk will be followed by a book signing and a music session with Guadeloupean drummer and composer Arnaud Dolmen and pianist Leonardo Montana, after an introduction to ‘jazz creole’ from journalist Kevin Le Gendre.
