ASL Co-Hosts Reading and Performance with Anthony Joseph

ASL and the Institut fuer Anglistik hosted the reading of poet, novelist, and musician Anthony Joseph Monday evening at the Villa Tillmanns. Joseph, who was born in Trinidad and now lives in the UK, read from his most recent novel The African Origins of UFOs.

In a mixture of reading and performance, he also read from his collections of poetry, Desafinado (1994) and Teragaton (1998). Some twenty people joined Joseph’s lively performance and the following Q & A.

The event was supported by the British Council, the American Studies Alumni Association, and the Akademisches Begegnungszentrum Leipzig.
