Some very fine news just landed in our inbox: Derek Walcott, the Saint Lucia–born poet who won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1992, will be giving the keynote lecture at a symposium at El Museo del Barrio in New York on the evening of Oct. 11.

His lecture is titled “A Part of the Continent, from John Donne” and will be followed by a theatrical reading of his 1970 play Dream on Monkey Mountain.

The symposium is tied to “Caribbean: Crossroads of the World,” a sprawling exhibition at El Barrio, the Queens Museum of Art and the Studio Museum in Harlem.
