Meet the Burt Award Caribbean Authors

CODE, in partnership with Bocas Lit Fest, Blue Banyan Books, and CaribbeanReads are pleased to present four award-winning authors:

These fantastic writers will be in Trinidad and Tobago visiting secondary schools, libraries, community centres, and books clubs.

You will also get a chance to meet the authors during a public reading and book signing at the Nigel R. Khan Bookseller, West Mall Saturday, November 11, 4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.

We are also thrilled to have our Reading Champion – Ro’dey The Entertainer – join in on the fun. He will be making surprise appearances with the authors during the tour. He will also be featured at the Raise the Bar: spoken word event featuring the 2 Cents Movement. Government Campus Plaza auditorium, Sunday, November 12, 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

Ro’dey and the authors will be promoting the #ReadwithMe campaign. Join us in promoting the love and habit of reading! Share with us your Read with Me activities (photos, book club activities, books you are reading, books you recommend, Facebook, Twitter, email, instagram) – we want to hear from you! Your post will be entered into the contest to win a visit from Ro’dey.
