Barbadian poet Esther Phillips

Barbadian poet Esther Phillips is in town for Brown’s two-day Caribbean Poets in Conversation discussion. Phillips just released Leaving Atlantis (Peepal Tree Press), a suite of poems that directly address the Barbadian novelist (and longtime Brown professor) George Lamming. Phillips will read alongside Ghanaian-born Jamaican poet Kwame Dawes, whose resume includes the recent Duppy Conqueror (Copper Canyon Press, 2013), as well as an authoritative text on Bob Marley lyrics and an Emmy Award for reporting on HIV in post-earthquake Haiti.
