On Saturday 17 November 2018, poet, novelist and broadcaster Kei Miller, and novelist and short story writer Kerry Young, will read from and talk about their fiction. The readings and discussion will focus on Miller’s Augustown (2016) and Young’s Pao (2011, the first in a trilogy), two novels which convey Jamaica’s past and present through their portrayal of particular Kingston neighbourhoods. Challenging perceptions of inner-city Kingston as a criminogenic ghetto, these novels foreground the city’s multiple identities and histories.
