Nobel Prize laureate Derek Walcott is the  confirmed keynote speaker for the 9th annual St. Martin Book Fair, June 2 - 4, 2011..

“Freedom of Expression” is the theme of the three-day fair that opens with Walcott’s address at the Chamber of Commerce Building in Spring Concordia, Marigot, June 2, at 8 PM.

St. Martin lovers of reading, writing, good books, Caribbean culture, and just plain culture chic – along with visitors to the island – will get a front-row seat to see, hear and meet the world-acclaimed St. Lucian poet, playwright, writer and visual artist who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1992.

In 2011, the much-in-demand Walcott won the T.S. Eliot Prize in the UK and Trinidad’s BOCAS literary prize for White Egrets, his new and 14th book of poems.
