3. I am planning a re-launch in Trinidad by the end of the year and welcome suggestions on a Caribbean speaker who could speak on the trends in the Caribbean Children book market. I know that some of you are published authors, if your editor/agent would be interested in speaking at the event we could do a launch /re-launch of your books in Trinidad as well. I am hoping to pull this off by the end of November.
We can also look at doing something similar on your island if you believe it is feasible.
Send me your thoughts.
