Anguilla: Poet Nikki Giovanni headlines Lit Fest


The idea of plopping down on a Caribbean beach with a good book gets a serious upgrade at the “Anguilla Lit-Fest: A Literary Jollification.”

Headlining this year’s event, which runs May 23-26, is legendary poet Nikki Giovanni (pictured), whose early poetry in the 1960s was inspired by the civil rights and black power movements. Also expected this year: National Book Award winner Bob Schacochis, Haitian-American author Edwidge Danticat and Simon & Schuster executive Judith Curr.
