Ongoing – Independence art show at the airport – extended to the weekend of November 10th 2018. For more on this event, check out CREATIVE SPACE 14 at my Jhohadli blog.
Ongoing – new film – Loving Daniella – while this doesn’t look to be a local film, it does, judging from the trailer, have some location shots in Antigua and Barbuda, and some local talent (I spied Omar Mathurin and Julie Hewlett who played brother and sister in Antigua and Barbuda’s first feature length film The Sweetest Mango – congrats to both of them!) – it popped up in my social media timeline with a reminder to support local talent so (though it’s free advertising for Caribbean Cinemas which never responds to our requests to contribute to Wadadli Pen) I’m passing it on.
7th 14th 2018 – 5-7 p.m – Eef Armstrong, someone who through her Raw Island Products has been a Wadadli Pen patron and whose daughter was a regular in the finals gallery until she graduated out of the 12 and younger category and turned her attention to the performing arts (so be sure to go out and support!), is artist of the month at Vino Joe, Mandolin Place, Friars Hill Road.
November 10th 2018 – 8 p.m. – AGHS Honeybee Theatre, helmed by Zahra Airall, no stranger to Wadadli Pen blog regulars as she is listed in the theatre bibliographies and related postings, and actually collaborated with us on a Black History Month showcase when Wadadli Pen returned in 2010 after a 3 year break, presents Light in the Dark, a play she’s taken twice on tour this year, at the Dean William Lake Centre. Don’t miss your chance to see this!

November 17th 2018 – 4 p.m. – this one is not in Antigua nor Barbuda but I just wanted to remind the Antiguan and Barbudan diaspora in south Florida that I’ll be reading at the Miami Book Fair – where the Spanish edition of Lost! The Caribbean Sea Adventure will also make its debut.
