Writers share works
Three of Barbados’ writers got the opportunity to share some of their works, along with that of other outstanding writers, this afternoon at the Barbados Public Library in The City.
It was the final event celebrating National Library Week in the United States, and was organized by the United States Embassy.
Writers DJ Simmons, Robert Sandiford and Karen Lord read excerpts from their own works and Dan Chaok, Margaret Atwood and Richard Holmes respectively.
During the question and answer segment, the three said there was a network among them where they shared information, worked together on projects, supported each other’s performances and the like.
Director of the Library Service Annette Smith said the library facilitated readings in the past and would be looking to have them on a regular basis. (YB)
