In Garfield Ellis’s novel, The Angels’ Share, a Jamaican father and his adult son travel across the island together in a touching and humorous novel that explores family reconciliation. A-dZiko Simba Gegele’s debut YA novel, All Over Again, is a hilarious and enchanting coming-of-age story about a young boy who goes through the trials and joys of puberty. Tanya Shirley’s latest collection of poetry, The Merchant of Feathers, longlisted for the 2015 Bocas Prize for Caribbean Literature, is full of poems that have their finger on the pulse of contemporary Jamaica in all its exuberance and brokenness.
In Geoffrey Philp‘s Garvey’s Ghost, a mother pursues every clue to find her missing daughter  Moderated by Kellie Magnus.

Miami Book Fair International: #ReadCaribbean

Here are all the #ReadCaribbean events at the Miami Book Fair International. See you soon!

UNICEF: For Every Child


#ForEveryChild, I wish the grace of wonder.
The plague of adult violence terrorizes our children.
From child-soldiers and sex-trafficking to the casual violence of spankings, children’s lives are destroyed by adults who abuse their power.
We can change this.
History has been changed when a few activists confronted threats to our common humanity.
Violence against children is a global threat.
As compassionate global citizens, we must become activists.
