I was in Dominica this weekend past to attend the Dominica Literary Festival. It is an event put on by a handful of bibliophiles and patriots led by Alwin Bully, a Caribbean treasure, like Lennox Honeychurch, people with a sensibility and sensitivity directed towards the soul of this region. It was quite an intimate affair, expected to grow as the festival builds visibility and a following.
This two and a half day festival had its highlights, the Jing Ping band, the Choir led by Pearl Christian- hear those young people sing in patois, dancing updated folk. Also an interview by Alwin Bully of Ian Randle who spoke to his life in publishing. Lennox Honeychurch gave a powerpointed talk on private and public libraries- ’Archiving Treasures’. cont./
