Between Two Worlds: Nicole Dennis-Benn with Donna Bailey Nurse
About this Event
Brilliantly navigating the themes of motherhood, immigration, sexuality, and sacrifice, award-winning author Nicole Dennis-Benn explores complex narratives that resonate with the experiences of the African-Diaspora – specifically within a Canadian context. In her most recent novel, “Patsy”, Nicole charts the geography of a hidden world – that of paradise lost, swirling with the echoes of lilting Patois, in which one woman fights to discover her sense of self in a world that tries to define her.
In conversation with Canadian literary critic Donna Bailey-Nurse, “Between Two Worlds” will take audience members through an evening of Jamaican cultural exploration, Afro-diasporic literary excellence, and culturally meaningful dialogue.
Doors open at 7pm | Conversation begins at 7:15
