Read & Carry On Caribbean Literature on Carry On Friends the Caribbean American Podcast

Read & Carry On – Caribbean Literature

It’s the summer and it’s a good time to talk about taking a break. Do you have plans to unwind?

Well I plan to celebrate the rekindling of my reading habit after cutting back to allow time for grieving, preparing for a new baby and all the life changes.

One of the goals of Carry On Friends is to celebrate Caribbean literature – books by Caribbean authors, Caribbean American authors and books by other authors regarding Caribbean life; an aspect of our culture which is underrepresented on the web.

To rekindle my love of Caribbean literature, I’m getting lost in these 3 recommended books for summer.

  1. A House for Mr. Biswas by V.S. Naipaul – A re-read from from my Jamaican school days.
  2. Fingerprints of Previous Owners by Rebecca Entel  – Released last year but didn’t get a chance to read it.
  3. How to Love a Jamaican by Alexia Arthurs – The exciting new release.
Check out other Caribbean literature we’ve read recommended in the past:

Interested in reading along with me for the summer?
