Her poetry will be introduced and performed by her son Brixton poet Stephen Duncan and family, with songs composed and performed by the celebrated Brixton singer and composer Andreas Demetriou and friends, musicians Stavroula Thoma and Myra Sands.
With themes of migration and the refugee experience her poetry is both timely and wise.
