PLU Open Mic Featuring Alecia McKenzie

September 22, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 11:30 pm


This week, on September 22, our open mic featured reader is none other than the Jamaican writer, painter and artist Alecia McKenzie! Her first book, Satellite City, and her novel Sweetheart have both won Commonwealth literary awards, and she was shortlisted for the Commonwealth Short Story Prize in 2015. Her work has also appeared in literary magazines and various anthologies such as Stories from Blue Latitudes, Global Tales, Light Transports, and the first Girls’ Night In, among others. Sweetheart, the story of a free-spirited artist, is currently available in French translation as Trésor.

Alecibsmalla will be accompanied by French-Senegalese guitarist Alun Ba. Born in Dakar, Ba has lived in France, the United States and West Africa, and works in different creative areas as an architect, photographer and musician. This Jamaican-Senegalese collaboration brings together literature, reggae and the blues.

You can be a part of the evening too, just turn up around 8 to sign up (poetry, prose, music, theater…anything!) and be ready to rock at 8.30/45!
