I am sharing this from the wonderful Repeating Islands blog that covers all things Caribbean culture. Distinguished Jamaican writer Olive Senior, who is based in Canada nowadays, will be in Jamaica to give the 5th Biennial lecture from the National Library of Jamaica: “Colon Man a Come.” Here is some background information on her book, "Dying to Better Themselves: West Indians and the building of the Panama Canal." Ms. Senior will deliver the lecture in Kingston this coming Sunday, September 21, 2014, at the Institute of Jamaica Lecture Hall at 2:00pm; and also in Montego Bay on Sunday, October 1, at the Western Jamaica Campus of the University of the West Indies at 5:30pm. This should be a fascinating lecture, one not to be missed!
