Dionne Brand - Beauty & Social Justice

Dionne Brand, Toronto’s current Poet Laureate, writes poetry, novels and non-fiction. Born in Trinidad and Tobago, at 17 Brand moved to Canada to study at the University of Toronto. She was awarded the Governor General’s Award for her poetry collection Land to Light On and the 2011 Griffin Poetry Prize for her book-length poem Ossuaries.

Brand’s writing is notable for the beauty of its language and its intense engagement with issues of social justice. As a young girl growing up in Trinidad, Dionne submitted poems to the newspapers under the pseudonym Xavier Simone, a homage to Nina Simone. Join Dionne in conversation with Hinemoana Baker.

With support from the Lion Foundation.
