Calabash is here! Here are the five things TALLAWAH is most looking forward to at the May 25-27 literary fiesta in easy-breezy Treasure Beach: (1) Chatting with Nigeria’s Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Jamaica’s very own Olive Senior… (2) Browsing the on-site bookshop for exciting new titles to add to my booming collection… (3) Witnessing the length of the bathroom line set a brand-new record… (4) Readings full of life, wit and wisdom…. (5) Watching that glorious Saturday-evening sunset.
Food, glorious food! Jamaica’s biggest culinary bash, The Food Awards (put on by the Jamaica Observer), will take over the lawns of Devon House on May 31 for its 2012 incarnation. Those attending this year’s extravaganza can expect gastronomical delights, as always, from some of the food industry’s most creative and award-worthy souls. Salut!
In homage to our Golden Jubilee, organizers are planning a Miss Jamaica World series of activities with a difference. Stay tuned.
