Kay Alexander & Cendrine Marrouat -- Dual ReadingWednesday Sep 07 2011 7:30 pm, Winnipeg, Grant Park in the Travel Alcove
Kay Alexander, originally from Trinidad and Tobago, migrated to Canada where she has spent most of her adult life working with children, including youth in crisis and has also counseled abused women. Kay’s poetry has been inspired by those she has worked with and gives voice to those often “forgotten” in our society.
Cendrine Marrouat was born in southern France, before moving to Canada. She is a freelance writer, reviewer and blogger, and the author of five collections of poetry and a spoken word album. Cendrine’s poetry and journalism have been published online and in many magazines.
This evening, Kay and Cendrine will be reading, as well as discussing their collaborative effort Kip Programs, a service dedicated to empowering and improving the lives of those in need through all-inclusive programs that will provide necessary tools and equal opportunities for success. This book reading will also serve as a fundraiser where a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the featured authors’ books will be used to help finance KIP.
