This week we are sharing, in celebration of the 92Y Unterberg Poetry Center’s 75th anniversary, five new installments—one per day—of our 75 at 75 project, which features recordings from the Poetry Center’s archive and personal responses by contemporary authors. Today it’s Victor LaValle on a recording of Jamaica Kincaid from 1995. Jamaica Kincaid returns to 92Y this evening, for a reading with Merle Hodge.
Jamaica Kincaid’s live Paris Review Writers-at-Work interview at 92Y with critic Darryl Pinckney from February 25, 2013, as part of our longstanding collaboration with the Poetry Center.
