This weekend Siana took part in the Litro Weekender! She hosted a poetry hour in which she was in conversation with guests about the themes in her debut collection of poetry, ‘Elephant’ and also ran a marvellous Litro Women’s Hour with Irenosen Okojie and Frances Mensah Williams.
Many thanks to Karibee Books for coming along and reflecting on the session:
On Sunday, May 28th in the cosy basement of the Waterstones on Tottenham Court road, Siana Bangura read from and discussed her debut book, Elephant.
As a standard fiction novel reader, a poetry hour event isn’t my usual cup of tea. However, when I came across the promotion for this event I was curious to discover what the world of poetry had to offer and so I got my tickets and journeyed to central London for my induction into the world of poetry.
The poetry hour was part of a string of events hosted by the Litro Weekender Magazine for their World Series instalment; a weekend dedicated to the cultural and literary landscapes of Ghana and Nigeria. After a warm welcome from Catherine of Litro Magazine and a chat with the bubbly Siana, we settled down to enjoy the hour.
