Bocas Lit Fest

Event Synopsis

Caribbean writers of all genres “stand and deliver” their new work at a sundown special to close the second annual Caribbean Literature Day.

Readers, writers, and book lovers across the region and the diaspora celebrate “Caribbean Literature Day” on 12 July. 2021 is the second year this date will be observed, after being proposed in 2020 by the organisers of the St. Martin Book Fair, who urge us to “Celebrate the day by reading the works of your favourite Caribbean authors; buying Caribbean books, published in the Caribbean and beyond, and by Caribbean authors; and presenting Caribbean books as gifts. Celebrate the day with books, recitals, and with discussions about books, of poetry, fiction, drama, art, music, and all the other genres by Caribbean writers.”
