2500 copies of Joanne Hillhouse's award winning young adult novel Musical Youth have been distributed throughout the Caribbean. Thanks to CODE, administrators of the Burt Award for Caribbean Literature, young people on the islands of Antigua, Barbados, Guyana, Montserrat, St. Kitts, and Trinidad can access this novel. Books were also distributed to groups such as Hands Across the Sea, so it can be expected that they will turn up in even more islands.
Children are Zapped into an animal cell when they take part in our workshop at the Port Discovery Children's Museum. The workshop continues April 7th and 9th.
Next time you fly on LIAT, be sure to look for our page in the Zing Magazine. Our first issue is on planes now with book recommendations and other Caribbean literary news.
