Dublin Book Festival, Sunday 13th November
‘Belonging’, Anton Floyd, Nandi Jola and Nithy Kasa in conversation with Tapasya Narang
“A special lunchtime event of poetry and conversation as academic Tapasya Narang is joined by three poets who have produced collections based on their journeys from their homelands to Ireland.
Depositions (Doire Press) by Anton Floyd is a collection that illuminates the trauma of the global refugee crisis with great compassion, ultimately making a case for empathy.
In Home is Neither Here Nor There (Doire Press) Nandi Jola explores themes of home, migration, and the relationship between humans, animals and morals.
Palm Wine Tapper and the Boy at Jericho (Doire Press) by Nithy Kasa takes us on a journey from countryside to city, and from childhood to womanhood, written in the narrative folklore of Nithy’s native culture.”
