Colin Channer
Sean Frederick Forbes

On Monday, April 18, writers Colin Channer and Sean Frederick Forbes will read and discuss their works of poetry, each deeply rooted in family heritage, place, and Caribbean culture.

The two writers, both of Caribbean heritage, released their first books of poetry, Providential (Channer) and Providencia (Forbes). Fittingly, they will come together in Providence to read and delve into the origins of their poems, the duality between colonial British and Spanish influences (socially, politically, historically, and culturally) on the Caribbean, and the meaning of providence.

This event will take place Monday, April 18, 2016 at the Providence Athenaeum, 251 Benefit Street, Providence RI. Opening reception starts at 5:30pm, and we will get started at 6:00pm. This event is free to all.

Presented by Frequency Writers and the Providence Athenaeum; sponsored by a grant from RISCA.
