In partnership with Festival America, the British Library, the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and the Québec Government Office in London, this French Caribbean evening will be an exceptional opportunity to hear Dany Laferrière talk about his writing and in particular The Enigma of the Return. The talk will be followed by a book signing and a music session. Guadeloupian drummer and composer Arnaud Dolmen will perform with pianist Leonardo Montana, after an introduction to ‘jazz creole’ from journalist Kevin Legendre.
