Posted February 11, 2019 12:28:28Kanno, who has a knack for taking on complex subjects and often uses them in her work, takes the title of this anthology very seriously.
The author, who is currently working on a book about a woman who grew up on a farm in New Zealand, says she hopes the book will help young readers learn about the struggles they have to face.
The book’s title comes from the name of a song, which was written in the 1930s, in which a woman is forced to grow up in a small rural community.
She’s named Beena, after the indigenous language used to describe her life in the community.
Beena is the story of a woman named Claire who, after her parents died, was taken to a farmhouse by her mother and sister and raised by them.
After graduating from college, she was taken into a small village where she was forced to become a maid and to serve as a servant for a farmer named Claire.
Beena is named after the traditional word for a young girl.
Kannen, who was recently awarded the Grand Prize for Contemporary English Literature at the 2018 Poetry Slam, says Beena Kanna is a “brilliant story about an adolescent girl struggling to live her life as a young woman”.
The book, which has a total of 12 poems, was released by her publisher last year and will be available for purchase on March 8.
“It is about growing up and learning to accept yourself as an adult, and what it means to be an adult in this world,” she said.
“I think the title is just a very beautiful way of putting it.”
