The Launch of "October Afternoon"

The University of the West Indies (UWI), Mona, Department of Literatures in English will host the launch of October Afternoon, a collection of poetry by UWI, Mona lecturer, Dr. Paulette Ramsay. The Book Launch is slated for Tuesday, October 30, 2012 at 6:30 pm at the Undercroft, UWI, Mona Campus.
October Afternoon is the second volume of poetry to be published by Dr. Ramsay, who is Head of the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures, UWI, Mona. Her first collection, Under Basil Leaves, was published in 2010.
October Afternoon has been described as a collection of “carefully crafted, layered, rich, subtle and resonant poems which are fanciful, teasing and simultaneously sombre.” The anthology deals with a wide range of issues including growing up, globalisation, self – formation, individual and Caribbean identity, subjectivity and individual agency, love, male – female relationships, and day to day social and political issues.
Dr. Ramsay is also the author of the novel, Aunt Jen and has published short stories and poems in BIM, the Caribbean Journal of the Arts and the Caribbean Journal of Education. She has a second novel to be released soon. Dr. Ramsay also has a strong record of academic writing and publishing.
The public is invited to attend the launch.
