About Bios & Bookmarks

Bios & Bookmarks is an online reading series with Caribbean authors that premiered in April 2020 and is powered by the NGC Bocas Lit Fest. It features readings and discussions with both familiar and new Caribbean writers across the region and diaspora – allowing us to get to know the faces behind the words and what’s on their bookshelves. It’s also an opportunity to share comfort, laughter and insights to help get us through these uncertain times. It may be a time for social distancing, but we’ve found a way to get a little up close and personal with some of our favourite authors!
