Anguilla Lit-Fest: A Literary Jollification

The tiny tropical paradise of Anguilla is pleased to announce the first annual “Anguilla Lit-Fest: A Literary Jollification.” This auspicious event will take place from May 24-28, 2012 under the distinguished patronage of award-winning author, Terry McMillan.
Also joining Ms. McMillan for this occasion will be authors, Randall Robinson of the USA who now resides in St. Kitts; editor, Malaika Adero of Atria/Simon & Schuster; Lasana Sekou of House of Nehesi Publishers in St Maarten; Mr. David Carty, Anguillian historian and author; Hill Harper – USA Authour/Actor/Philantropist; Marie-Elena John – Antiguan Author and many others.
The Anguilla Lit-Fest was conceptualized as a means of celebrating Anguilla’s literary heritage and is seen as a catalyst for visitor arrivals during the summer shoulder period. Some 200 plus visitors from the USA, Canada and The Caribbean are expected to be on island for the four- day event, which will feature a Welcome Cocktail, Breakfast and Lunch presentations, special sessions with the authors and fun-filled evening soirees. Participants will also be given a full day to create their personal Anguilla Experience or to reconnect with their individual creative muse.
