Poetry International

Here's Nigerian poet, Chinwe Azubuike meeting Gabeba Baderoon - South Bank Centre, London, 25 October 2006. Read Azubuike's essay and poetry about the recent death of her father and her widowed mother's shocking treatment by the father's family - here.

Here meeting fans and signing his books is Martin Espada who performed on the same bill as Gabeba Baderoon.

Kwame Dawes, though he did not perform on this particular evening, was one of the headliners of Poetry International 2006. I told him I loved his piece in Granta 92, Passport Control (or... "can I be a Jamaican, please?").

Gabeba Baderoon here signs a copy of her latest collection, A Hundred Silences.
