Caribbean American Heritage Month 2009

Caribbean American Heritage Month

In 2006 President George W. Bush issued a proclamation for the celebration of Caribbean American Heritage Month in June of each calendar year: “For centuries, Caribbean Americans have enriched our society and added to the strength of America. They have been leaders in government, sports, entertainment, the arts, and many other fields. . . . We are united by our common values and shared history, and I join all Americans in celebrating the rich Caribbean heritage and the many ways in which Caribbean Americans have helped shape this Nation.”

Throughout this month, I will be doing my part to help with this celebration by joining with fellow writers and artists in South Florida. I will be reading from my latest collection of short stories, Who’s Your Daddy?: And Other Stories at the following venues:
