ABILF – Flashback

So, word is, there’s no Antigua and Barbuda International Literary Festival this year (2011). That’s really too bad considering the event’s potential, but perhaps not too surprising given its financial struggles since its debut in 2006. This post flashes back to the promise of thatĀ first year.

Hopefully we haven’t seen the last of what was then the Caribbean International Literary Festival.
