The children asked questions about Jamaica, the books I had published, and my reasons for writing Grandpa Sydney’s Anancy Stories. They also asked me about the mountains in Jamaica, and why at the end of the first chapter Grandpa Sydney was sad. I explained to them that like Grandpa Sydney, I missed the mountains of Jamaica where I grew up.
Give thanks to the Miami Dade Public Library System and the Lemon City Branch for inviting me to be a part of this year’s celebration. It really was a pleasure.
