Join poet Echezonachukwu Nduka as he reads from his new book, "Waterman."

“In Waterman, the vibrant poetry of Echezonachukwu Nduka takes imaginative leaps and turns, finds meanings in kindred places, from the streets of Margate to the currents of the Niger; and in people, from the old teacher to the sole artist. Speaking sometimes as the young philosopher, Nduka spins an entrancing web of imagery and mesmerizing vortex of ideas. His passion for music runs like a leitmotif throughout his poems, striking notes that illuminate our humanity and spirituality. In his masterful poem “Transition” he speaks of “harmonic resonance of all unguarded hours….” Here the old teacher asks, “Who owns language?” In this transcendent poem we can safely say Nduka owns the language, fills it with wonder, and makes it new again.” - ANTOINETTE LIBRO
