The Launch of the Lignum Vitae Writing Awards - Jamaica: meaningful awards, meaningful monetary prizes
Monday, January 26, 2015
I have said that when I was little I was an avid reader (of course), but interested as I was in the stories I read, my desire was that there be stories about us, as we are, as 'normal' people. I might now add, in relation to my last post, not necessarily quaint.
So I’m ambling through the book and something catches my eye on p.3, where the young hero describes his father, “He has dark brown skin like mine, piercing brown eyes, a bald head and a goatee . . . ”
Books shown here: Cricket is My Game by Jason Cole from Barbados; Shaggy Parrot and the Reggae Band by Jana Bent and Friends, Jamaica; A Tumbling World . . .A Time of Fire (an E-book on Amazon) by Diane Browne from Jamaica; Drog a Dreggen Story by Hazel Campbell from Jamaica, and Boy Boy and the Magic Drum by Machel Montano from Trinidad and Tobago.
