Anguilla Lit Fest – Some Photos

Yeah, I know, not the most imaginative headline. But these are some additional pictures from the Anguilla Literary Festival where, as an invited guest, I did a talk and reading at the public library, was part of a panel well attended by a number of students who’d read and studied my book The Boy from Willow Bend, and co-facilitated a youth writing workshop. Thanks, Anguilla, and thanks, Anguilla students, for your enthusiastic response to The Boy from Willow Bend. Hope you pick up Musical Youth with as much enthusiasm. Fingers crossed.

Signing autographs...yeah, I was surprised too.

I did a session at the Anguilla Public Library... that's a staff member (and the supplier of many of my Anguilla photos to my right) and to my left are other participating people in publishing - Philip Arnell, writer, Yona Deshommes, publicist, Annie Potts, writer and actress, and J. Ivy, poet and author.

I love how enthusiastic this teacher was about The Boy from Willow Bend as well...she told a story about how responsive boys who didn't particularly like to read had been to it that made my day.I love how enthusiastic this teacher was about The Boy from Willow Bend as well...she told a story about how responsive boys who didn't particularly like to read had been to it that made my day.
