Notes from a small island
A weblog by Jonathan Ali

Wednesday, April 23, 2003  

I'm surprised Nicholas is yet to blog about this: Jamaica's third annual Calabash Literary Festival is set to come off, from May 23-25. Here's the NY Times' entry on the festival.

Derek Walcott will headline the festival. Also set to appear are 2001 Village Voice "Writer on the Verge" Nelly Rosario of the Dominican Republic (Is she still on the verge after two years? And speaking of Dominican writers on the verge, whatever happened to Junot Diaz?), Nalo Hopkinson and Adziko Simba, who happens to be a friend of mine.

And making her debut as a "spoken word" poet will be the First Lady of Dancehall, Marion Hall, aka Lady Saw.
