UEA Live: Malika Booker


Interdisciplinary artist, and co-founder of Malika’s Poetry Kitchen, Malika Booker, will discuss the collective’s upcoming anthology, ‘Too Young, Too Loud, Too Different’, with scriptwriter and poet Molly Naylor.

Malika’s Poetry Kitchen is a writers’ collective founded in Brixton by Malika Booker and Roger Robinson in 2001. ‘Kitchen’, as it became known, has ushered in a new generation of voices, launching some of the most exciting writers, books and initiatives in British poetry in the past twenty years. ‘Too Young, Too Loud, Too Different’, is an extraordinary anthology of poems celebrating 20 years of Kitchen, featuring poems by Warsan Shire, Inua Ellams, Kayo Chingonyi, Dean Atta and Roger Robinson among others.

All events will be live in-person in the UEA Lecture Theatre block from 7pm – 8pm (unless government guidelines advise otherwise and then events will be moved online). There will be author Q&As and the opportunity to buy signed copies of the authors’ books.
