Caribbean writers explore the dichotomies that permeate life in the Caribbean, a place that is vibrant and joyous but also riddled with corruption and violence. They discuss the fascinating traditions and values that bind Caribbean people, but also the literal and metaphorical walls that divide them and the struggle to overcome the consequences imposed by such artificial boundaries. With Pamela Mordecai (Jamaica) on A Fierce Green Place: New and Selected Poems, Mc. Donald Dixon (St. Lucia) on A Scream in the Shadows, and Celeste Mohammed (Trinidad and Tobago) on Pleasantview: A Novel in Stories. Moderating is ReadJamaica’s Kellie Magnus.
