Nantucket Book Festival: Safiya Sinclair with Mary Haft

How to Say Babylon

Celebrated poet Safiya Sinclair’s new memoir, How to Say Babylon, is winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award in Autobiography, a finalist the Kirkus Prize, and is long-listed for the Women’s Prize in Non-Fiction. How to Say Babylon tells the story of Safiya’s upbringing under her strict Rastafarian father in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Her memoir will undoubtedly resonate with many Nantucketers who have roots in Jamaican culture and with all readers on a journey of reckoning with their own family story. Safiya will be joined in conversation with Co-Founder of the Nantucket Book Foundation and Board member, writer & producer, Mary Haft.
