Read Caribbean

The month of June is celebrated as Caribbean Heritage Month and it is a month where we encourage people to Read Caribbean. In 2019 I started the calling June Read Caribbean month to tie in with the Heritage month celebrations. This initiative was started to create awareness for Caribbean Literature, Caribbean Authors and Authors from Caribbean Heritage. There needs to be a space for Caribbean Writers and Literature because our voice is so uniquely ours.

The aim of the Read Caribbean month is to encourage persons to:

  • Read books by Caribbean Nationals/ persons of Caribbean heritage
  • Books about the Caribbean
  • Books set in the Caribbean

With this our second year, we want to make a bigger impact. Currently we have 25 Caribbean Bookstagrammers who will be advocating for reading Caribbean all of June.
