Welcome Derek Walcott!

Derek Walcott is arriving in New York for a week of readings, and we wanted to mark the occasion by rounding up all we have had to offer of his work over the years, for your delectation:

• Poems in Issue #1

• Translation of a Christmas Poem by Joseph Brodsky

• Performance of his play, Moon-Child, at the American Academy in Rome, with Walcott playing the narrator

• Memoir of Walcott and Brodsky by Melissa Green

• Little Star panel at AWP 2013 with Derek Walcott and Glyn Maxwell, unrecorded except for this moment

• “The Sisters of St. Joseph” (1957) with a comment by Glyn Maxwell, in Little Star Weekly, January 24, 2014

and this week in Little Star Weekly, a selection from Moon-Child.

We encourage locals to grab this chance to hear him at the Y, or at Queens College, or at Medgar Evers College, and everyone else to dip into this capacious new collection.
