Thumbs up Writers@Drew Event !

Kwame Dawes
Tuesday, April 1st 4 pm
ARTS 106

Kwame Dawes was born in Ghana, and spent most of his childhood in Jamaica. As a poet, he is profoundly influenced by the rhythms and textures of that lush place, citing in a recent interview his "spiritual, intellectual, and emotional engagement with reggae music." His book Bob Marley: Lyrical Genius remains the most authoritative study of the lyrics of Bob Marley. Dawes is also the author of twelve collections of poetry and a recently-published novel, She’s Gone. He is director of the Calabash International Literary Festival, held in St. Elizabeth, Jamaica, and Distinguished Poet-in-Residence at the University of South Carolina.

This is a free event, sponsored by the English Department, Pan-African Studies, the Music Department and Umoja House. Lite refreshments will be served.
