WAM October 29-30 Lorna Goodison

Lorna Goodison is a Jamaican - Canadian poet who has won the Commonwealth Writers Prize for her poetry and the BC Award for Non-fiction for her memoir, From Harvey River. That book was a finalist for the Charles Taylor Prize and the Trillium Book Award.

Lorna Goodison has just released a new collection of short stories, By Love Possessed, a loosely linked series that looks at life through a microscope, and by seeing that which is small, she also see that which is big.

Lorna Goodison will be reading from her new book next week in St. John’s as part of Memorial University Visiting Authors series. I spoke with her this week and seeing as how most people know her for her poetry and her award-winning memoir, I asked Lorna Goodison how long she’d been writing short stories.
