The Trinidad and Tobago Literary Festival - Bocas Lit Fest

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.....

I was trying to get my post up this week, but i definitely won't get it up by tomorrow. I'm going to shoot for Monday. I chose 4 books, all different from yours. So between the 2 of us, we'll have pretty good coverage of the books and the authors. Looking forward to the collabo - as soon as we figure out what that is!

BTW, something weird is going on with the RHP link. It redirecting to a log in page instead of the blog.

Yea, I have to hold myself accountable, so posting this blog is sure to make me not lie to myself. I can't wait to devour these books.

I fixed the connection to your blog, and it should take my readers right over there.

Happy reading....
