Holi Celebration through Poetry: Rajiv Mohabir

March 24 @ 7:30 pm

In this two-part event, Poet Rajiv Mohabir will give a reading and discuss his book I Even Regret Night: Holi Songs of Demerara (Kaya Press, 2019), Mohabir’s translation of Lalbihari Sharma’s 1916 book of poems. This book captures life’s hardships as an island “coolie” worker, the only known literary work by an indentured servant in the Anglophone Caribbean.
Tyree Daye (UNC-Chapel Hill, author of Cardinal) will join in interviewing Rajiv about his poetic career and upcoming projects. Questions from the audience are warmly encouraged.
