On the back cover of Kwame Dawes’ 2013 book Duppy Conqueror: New and Selected Poems, wordsmith Elizabeth Alexander sings the penman’s praises. “Kwame Dawes is one of the most important writers of his generation who has built a mighty and lasting body of work,” she says. Born in Ghana and raised in Jamaica, Dawes is profoundly prolific, producing 16 poetry collections plus projects ranging from fiction to memoir to plays to a long-form study of reggae legend Bob Marley’s lyrics. Lit lovers are welcome to join Vermont Studio Center residents and staff to hear the Pushcart Prize winner read excerpts from his celebrated catalog as part of the Visiting Artists and Writers program.
