Bocas Lit Fest

Event Synopsis


Online projects like Rebel Women Lit’s Caribbean Readers’ Awards and the Bocas Lit Fest’s 100 Caribbean Books That Made Us draw on a community of avid readers, active on social media, to crowdsource ideas of what Caribbean books and writers matter most. How is our sense of a Caribbean literary canon — historical or contemporary — being reshaped by this predominantly young, female, and networked readership? Writer Donna Hemans — winner of the 2020 Caribbean Readers’ Award for best adult fiction — and bookstagrammer Ambika Jadoonanan (ambi_reads) — winner of the best content creator award — join Rebel Women Lit founder Jherane Patmore and the Bocas Lit Fest’s Alana-Marie Gopaul for a frank discussion. Presented in partnership with Rebel Women Lit.
