Fifth graders for Book Fair guest writer from Martinique


The Book Fair Committee (BFC) is continuing with its pre-book fair activities for the 7th annual St. Martin Book Fair (June 4 – 6, 2009). BFC member Connier Thelwell joined teacher Lenny Mussington in presenting books to Mr. Mussington’s fifth grade class at the Nina Duverly School.

Mr. Thelwell visited the school recently to make the BFC presentation of the children’s story book Une robe couleur soleil (A Sun Colored Dress) by Nicole Cage. Cage, an award-winning author from Martinique, is one of an international batch of writers, poets, novelists, literary critics, a filmmaker, bloggers and scholars heading for the island to participate in the "book fair for the entire family." Mr. Mussington will lead his students into "exploring" the book in anticipation of Nicole Cage’s visit to the class. Schools in Marigot, Cole Bay and St. Peters were picked this year by BFC for visits and literary discussions with well-known writers. The St. Martin Book Fair is organized by Conscious Lyrics Foundation and House of Nehesi Publishers in collaboration with the St. Maarten Tourist Bureau and the University of St. Martin.
