We are pleased to launch Panya’s new poetry collection Some Things (published by Burning Eye).

Her collection reflects her position as one of the first generation of Caribbean people born in Britain and she portrays the sometimes uneasy interactions between those of an immigrant background and those of the dominant culture, aware of often being the outsider. Despite injustice, there is hope for redemption. Good will come out of bad.

Panya Banjoko is well-known on the poetry performance circuit. She is one of the founders of Nottingham Black Archive and is a patron of Nottingham City of Literature. She is also one of the founders of Read a Black Writer Day.

Admission free, refreshments available, but please let us know you are coming on events@fiveleaves.co.uk.
