Vahni Capildeo & Vivek Narayanan


Join us for an evening of conversation, analysis, readings, and provocations from two emerging writers, at least partially in discussion of recent forms of reception and receptivity.

Vahni Capildeo writes both poetry and prose. Her fourth book, Dark & Unaccustomed Words, is due out this year. She is a Lecturer at Kingston University (UK) and Contributing Editor for the Caribbean Review of Books.

Vivek Narayanan’s first book, Universal Beach, will be published by ingirumimusnocteetconsumimurigni this spring; his second, Mr. Subramanian, is forthcoming. Narayanan is co-editor of Almost Island, and was a coordinator of the fellowship network at Sarai. His work appears in The Bloodaxe Book of Contemporary Indian Poetry and Language for a New Century: Contemporary Poetry from the Middle East, Asia, and Beyond. He lives in Delhi.
