[Event] Nadia L. Hohn in Conversation with Summer Edward

August 2nd, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

On Wednesday August 2nd, 2017, join us for a conversation with Anansesem alum Nadia L. Hohn, an award-winning Jamaican children's author based in Canada.

Nadia L Hohn began writing, illustrating and making books at age five. She is the author of the Music and Media books in the Sankofa Series (Rubicon Publishing, 2015.) In 2014, she was awarded the Helen Issobel Sissons Canadian Children's Book Award for her picturebook manuscript, Malaika's Costume, which was published by Groundwood Books and won the 2015-2016 Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) Children's Literature Award. She has studied writing at the Highlights Foundation, Humber College School of Writers, George Brown College and Voices of our Nation (VONA). Le Costume de Malaika, the French translation of Malaika’s Costume, was published in January 2017 and the sequel, Malaika's Winter Carnival, is due in the fall of 2017.

Hohn will talk children's literature, writing, and her recent books and take questions from the audience in this discussion. Moderator Summer Edward is a former judge of the Golden Baobab Prizes for African children's literature and Anansesem's Editor-in-Chief.

We published a review of Malaika's Costume (read it here) and an interview with Hohn (read it here) in our December 2016 issue, and we couldn't be more thrilled that she's coming to Trinidad.
