A conversation with Shani Mootoo and Vahni Capildeo

Thursday 18 December, 2014, 7 pm, at Alice Yard

Trinidadian-Canadian writer Shani Mootoo’s most recent novel, Moving Forward Sideways Like a Crab, was longlisted for the 2014 Giller Prize. Her other books include Cereus Blooms at Night, the Man Booker Prize–longlisted novel of love, repression, and family secrets for which she is perhaps best known.

UK-based Trinidadian Vahni Capildeo’s newest book of poems, Utter, was published by Peepal Tree Press in 2013. She is the author of four other collections of poems, including the OCM Bocas Prize–longlisted Dark and Unaccustomed Words.

On Thursday 18 December, jointly hosted by Paper Based Bookshop and Alice Yard, both writers will read from and discuss their new work in an informal conversation with Shivanee Ramlochan.

All are invited.
