Event description

Description

"...From San Fernando to Brooklyn, poetry is the Carnival, and the Trinidad Carnival finds its way into my poetry—­as visual and oral experience—everyday living, a painted face J’ouvert morning. Many of the poems in this volume have aged with me and over that time, and again like my own life, been transformed into some measure of sustained lucidity..."

A 1990 recipient of New York State Fellowship on the Arts (Poetry), Mr. Philip was one of five poets selected to represent Brooklyn in a Brooklyn-Leningrad Literary Exchange in the 1990s. Mr. Philip has performed his works in the Caribbean, United States, Canada, Riga, Latvia, Moscow and St. Petersburg; selected poems have been translated into Russian by the former Leningrad Writers Union.

Anticipate an exciting evening with Dawad reading from his works. Fresh off the reel is the World Premiere of a short film of the same title, "Murals By The Sea-A Sando Story" by noted playwright and filmmaker Tony Hall.
