This lavishly hip and intellectually robust poetry event, presented in association with Akashic Books, which recently published the box set Eight New-Generation African Poets, brings together editors Kwame Dawes and Chris Abani for an overview of the current state of Africa’s vibrant and intense poetry scene. Who knows, the POEMobile may even stop by.
