On Thursday afternoon, many of the authors from the Anguilla Lit Fest met with school children from Anguilla to talk about our experiences as writers, and to answer their questions. The sessions were held at the Anguilla Library, and students were bused or walked to the site from various schools on the island. The students had been well prepared for their encounters — one girl in my group had even prepared an eloquent thank you speech which she delivered at the conclusion of my presentation.
I was most impressed with the students, their teachers, and the librarians — who had created displays on the bulletin boards about each writer and his/her books. Another great event!
