Need more evidence that Caribbean teens read? Well, students at the Antigua State College were visibly psyched to receive copies of 2014 Burt Award winning titles like my Musical Youth.
This particular group of students and their classmates were also gifted Colleen Smith-Dennis’ Inner City Girl thanks to Burt Award sponsor CODE and publishers CaribbeanReads and LMH, publishing, respectively, of Musical Youth and Inner City Girl. I hope they enjoy. After all, this series of books – created and/or boosted with the Caribbean teen in mind – is just for them.
Have you picked up your copy of Musical Youth or any of the winning titles – including ultimate winner Ad-Ziko Gegele’s All Over Again? Chances are, the teen – Caribbean or otherwise – in your life will thank you for it.
