St. John’s University’s annual Caribbean Writers Series event features Tiphanie Yanique (of St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands).
Thursday, April 28
St. John’s University
D’Angelo Center 128
Yanique will read from her recent poetry collection, Wife, and her novel, Land of Love and Drowning. The novel imaginatively weaves a multigenerational family story into the history of the Virgin Islands from Transfer Day (from Denmark to the US) in 1917 through contemporary times, exploring issues in gender, race, sexuality, US political and cultural imperialism, and tourism.
