On Tuesday night at Rich Mix, we’ll be raising a toast to the latest issue of SCARF, featuring artwork by Kanitta Meechubot (the heart, it’s her work…), another story from David Hermann’s London novel of cocktails and clashing subcultures and one of the ‘vignette essays’ that I’ve been writing to set the tone and language for my novel. The featured book of the evening is Sai Murray’s debut poetry collection and Kwani?’s Diaspora issue. Join us for readings, drinks music and a pop-up market… Tickets are 5 pounds and can be bought here or on the door.
We’re blessed to have such a talented number of writers in our family. If you need some reading inspiration this is a Numbi night not to be missed!
The official London launch of Numbi resident poet Sai Murray’s debut poetry collection Ad-liberation. Delighting in cut-n-paste wordplay and following in the committed political footsteps of Gil-Scott-Heron and Linton Kwesi-Johnson, Sai’s poetry offers personal takes on racism and challenges the inevitability of corporate power, consumerism and ecological blight. “wit and joyful engagement with language carries these poems to the heart”
