Admission is free, and all are invited. Copies of Miller's books will be on sale. For further information, contact The Reader's Bookshop at 628-7221, or email crb@meppublishers.com.


"Kei Miller ... writes with passionate understanding of bruised, repressed, and deprived selves seeking, achieving, or failing to find release and freedom."
-- Edward Baugh, reviewing Miller's debut books of fiction and poems in the February 2007 CRB

Kei Miller is the author of The Fear of Stones (2006), a book of short fiction, and Kingdom of Empty Bellies (2006), a book of poems, and the editor of New Caribbean Poetry (2007), an anthology showcasing eight poets from across the Caribbean. His second book of poems, There Is an Anger That Moves, will be published later this year, and his first novel will appear in 2008. The Fear of Stones was shortlisted for the Best First Book award, Caribbean and Canada, in the 2006 Commonwealth Writers' Prizes.
