A Written Version Of Marie Claude's Presentation Of Parched Earth
.Elizabeth BUTCHER has liked this book written by young Jamaican writer (39 years old) and she has agreed to share her reading with us.
On Wednesday March 7th, 2018 at La Mediathèque du Gosier Elizabeth 's presentation prompted discussions on FREEDOM achieved , Freedom denied, conflict with the establishment, the seemingly intractable issue of Identity Conflicts. By cutting off the dreadlocks of the young Rasta the teacher representing the establishment ignored the sacredness of this element in this communuty's iidentity, creating an autoclaps, a trouble harbinger to more trouble to come . As one of human fundamental needs can identity be denied or threatened with impunity ?
Elizabeth wanted it to be interactive and lively and it was indeed!
"The poet’s new novel dramatises the country’s history in a book with the feel of a ticking bomb." The Guardian commented
Indeed the story of Bedward,
one of the most successful preachers of Jamaican Revivalism.
is at the centre of Augustown, a partially fictionalised version of August Town, the same August Town making headline news these days in 2018 of the Jamaican Observer and the Gleaner.

Because they loved the book Chantale MATHIEU and Karine SALCÈDE treated us to a lovely presentation. They managed to say enough to discuss with those who had read the book, enough to please those who had no time to read, enough to tease those who had not finished yet.
Thank you ladies.
We are looking forward to your next presentation.
