Because they loved the book Chantale MATHIEU and Karine SALCÈDE treated us to a lovely presentation. They managed to say enough to discuss with those who had read the book, enough to please those who had no time to read, enough to tease those who had not finished yet.
Thank you ladies.
We are looking forward to your next presentation.
A captivated audience followed Tony Toumson's talk on Religion Faith and Spirituality, the case of Martin Luther King jr. It took place on Thursday January 14th a la Casa del Tango in Jarry.
Read the reports on this first most powerful event of the year as the Martin Luther King's Day was observed for the 30th time. ( A special Day voted in 1983 to be first observed in 1986)
We are very happy and grateful to receive all the items sent. Here is the list:
Small box: 8 French textbooks.
Large box: 7 pairs school shoes, 30 school shirts, 6 boxes chalk, 10 boxes colored pencils, 3 boxes Bic pens, 5 boxes colored markers, 2 boxes board markers, 1 box pencils, 3 pks. Cristal pens.
We have a number students at Convent High School who lost their school uniforms and school supplies in the flood. I will see that they get the shoes and shirts, etc. and convey your warm wishes to the recipients. I will also distribute supplies to some other schools in our area and in the country. I will keep a record of all distributions.
Thank you again for your donations. I will be in touch next week.

Elizabeth BUTCHER has liked this book written by young Jamaican writer (39 years old) and she has agreed to share her reading with us.
On Wednesday March 7th, 2018 at La Mediathèque du Gosier Elizabeth 's presentation prompted discussions on FREEDOM achieved , Freedom denied, conflict with the establishment, the seemingly intractable issue of Identity Conflicts. By cutting off the dreadlocks of the young Rasta the teacher representing the establishment ignored the sacredness of this element in this communuty's iidentity, creating an autoclaps, a trouble harbinger to more trouble to come . As one of human fundamental needs can identity be denied or threatened with impunity ?
Elizabeth wanted it to be interactive and lively and it was indeed!
"The poet’s new novel dramatises the country’s history in a book with the feel of a ticking bomb." The Guardian commented
Indeed the story of Bedward,
one of the most successful preachers of Jamaican Revivalism.
is at the centre of Augustown, a partially fictionalised version of August Town, the same August Town making headline news these days in 2018 of the Jamaican Observer and the Gleaner.

by Earl Lovelace, the struggle in defense of the Africanisation of Christianity in Trinidad, from 1917
Wednesday january 17th, 2018, 6:30 pm at la Médiathèque du Gosier, the presentation of Earl Lovelace's The Wine of Astonishment by Sonia Catalan triggered a lively debate on religions in the communities of African descent in the Caribbean , in the USA , in Guadeloupe and elsewhere , a debate reminiscent of Tony Toumson's talk, two years ago, on Religion Faith and Spirituality, in the african- american community: The Case of Martin Luther King jr.
But there is still a lot to say on the "Africanisation of christianity" or "R-eAfricanisation of Chistianity"
A great moment for those who didn't miss the event!
