|Karen Lord, author of Galaxy Games, and she will be at the lit fest.|
At the end of April, the beginning of May, I will be spending time in Trinidad for the Bocas Lit Fest.
Now, I had never thought about traveling to an international book festival, but my friend and fellow blogger, Shannon, from ReadingHasPurpose, stated that she was going, and I sort of invited myself.
Not sure what to expect from this festival, but I know that when you get writers, readers, books, and great location together, that usually creates something close to perfection.
So, to prepare for the lit fest, I am going to read five books, by five different authors who are going at be at the festival.
Below are links to the five books:
The Galaxy Game by Karen Lord
Moving Forward Sideways like a Crab by Shani Mootoo
Children of Paradise by Fred D'Aguiar
Land of Love and Drowning by Tiphanie Yanique
A Brief History of Seven Killings by Marlon James
Ambitious goal right?
I'll see what I can do.....
