Black History Month Books on CBC

In Writing (all kinds) on February 3, 2016 at 7:09 PM

Greetings!
I hope this note finds you well.  I wanted to share with you the following news — that my recent book, Terra Incognita (Inanna Publications, 2015), was officially recommended by Canada’s Poet Laureate, George Elliott Clarke, on behalf of the CBC!
Please click here to read the article on the CBC Books site, entitled “Black History Month: Lawrence Hill, George Elliott Clarke pick young black authors to watch.”
In addition to currently serving as Parliamentary Poet, Clarke’s numerous accolades include the National Magazine Awards’ Gold Medal for Poetry, the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Achievement Award and an appointment to the Order of Canada.
CBC Books also posted the article featuring a poem from my book, which you can freely read here. Lastly, please do visit the site of Inanna Publications, where you can order/read more about the book.  I have also included links to my blog, and Amazon author page, below.
Thank you so much for your support of Canadian arts & letters (and poetry specifically)!
Best wishes,
Adebe DeRango-Adem
