Kevin Adonis Browne's 'High Mas' Coming to 150

Kevin Adonis Browne's forthcoming second book High Mas: Carnival and the Poetics of Caribbean Culture has been called "a poetic, visually stunning, and necessary book" (Christina Sharpe, professor of humanities at York University) and "a one of a kind work that understands fundamentally all that is at stake when people make Mas–the embrace of their fierce unexpurgated beauty" (Dionne Brand, poet, novelist, and essayist).  

150 will feature the photography of Browne's 'High Mas' with books available to purchase. 

Dates for the soft opening and reception with book signing TBA.
