U.S. EMBASSY INVITES WRITERS TO PARTICIPATE IN NATIONAL LIBRARY WEEK READINGS
Wednesday 13th April 2011



The United States Embassy in Bridgetown, Barbados invites interested writers to participate in public readings as part of National Library Week activities from April 11-16, 2011.

First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week (NLW) is an observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the United States each April. The event celebrates the contributions of libraries and librarians to promote literacy, library use, and the significance of the written word as the vehicle for cultural transmission and preservation. The Embassy is planning a series of similar activities in public and school libraries in Barbados, St. Vincent, Grenada, Antigua-Barbuda, and Dominica.

The Antigua Public Library will be presented with 23 works of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry from a collection of the 2010 American Library Association’s “Notable Books List.”
The Embassy is inviting Antiguan and Barbudan authors to read her/his work at an official activity to be hosted at the Best of Books at Royal Palm Place on Friars Hill Rd. on Thursday, April 14 starting at 5:00 pm.  There will also be an opportunity to read from the 23 donated books. 

Each reading should be 3-7 minutes in duration to be followed by a short post-reading Q&A.

Interested authors are invited to contact Information Resource Associate Ms. Juanita Lynch at lynchJH@state.gov or Cultural Affairs Assistant Mr. Khalil Goodman at goodmankl@state.gov in the Office of Public Affairs in Barbados to register for the reading session:
