Drawing from her experiences as a first generation immigrant, Thembe’s poems transport the reader from seas to living rooms that form portals into sensory stories about family, loved ones and the self. She explores how she has navigated her sense of belonging from a childhood in South Africa, and then growing up in the UK. There is a vulnerability in her writing that is both brave and beautiful.
Thembe will read from her work, followed by a Q & A and book signing.
This event is presented by Apples and Snakes and Tate Enterprises.
