“One Book, One Community” Reading and Discussion Programme 2007
NALIS launched its second community reading campaign, One Book, One Community, on Monday 22 January in the Audio Visual Room of the National Library Building. The One Book, One Community reading campaign is a nationwide programme which aims to promote a culture of reading.
From January to April 2007, everyone was invited to read Miguel Street by Nobel Laureate, Sir Vidia Naipaul, and participate in discussions and a series of activities and events organized by NALIS throughout the country.
The Minister of Education, the Honourable Hazel Manning, Mrs. Annette Wallace, the Executive Director of NALIS, and a representative of the author spoke at the launch, which also included dramatization of excerpts from the book, as well as, selected readings. Everyone was encouraged to participate in this exciting nation-wide project to promote community reading and discussion.
Copies of Miguel Street are available for loan at all NALIS Public Libraries across the country. Contact your local library for additional information.
