An Evening of Caribbean Authors
Greenlight Bookstore, Monday, May 5 at 7:30pm
An Evening of Caribbean Authors Jennifer Davis Carey (Barbados), author of Near The Hope Esther Figueroa (Jamaica), author of Limbo Elizabeth Nunez (Trinidad), author of Not for Everyday Use Introduction by Carole Boyce Davies (Trinidad & Tobago), author of Caribbean Spaces: Escapes from Twilight Zones Reception with Caribbean food from Gloria’s

Brooklyn is home to over 400,000 citizens of the Caribbean diaspora, and the culture of the islands is a part of what gives the borough its identity. Greenlight is proud to partner with four independent publishers to present an evening of Caribbean stories from throughout the region, along with music and food to bring the islands to Fort Greene. Jennifer Davis Carey, a Brooklyn native with roots in Barbados, presents her novel Near The Hope, which moves from the lush world of Barbados to the hazy glow of New York at the turn of the 20th century to follow a young emigrant woman who leaves her beloved island to navigate uncharted challenges. Esther Figueroa explores the challenges of her native Jamaica in her suspenseful novel Limbo, the story of the dynamic leader of an environmental organization set to expose corporate greed and political hypocrisy in the form of a hotel chain polluting the island’s shores, despite threats to her life. Elizabeth Nunez, the award-winning Trinidadian author of eight novels, reflects on her own experience of diaspora in Not for Everyday Use, a riveting memoir in which Nunez wrestles with her mother's determination to have her leave her Trinidadian homeland for America. The evening will be introduced by Cornell professor Carole Boyce Davies, whose new work Caribbean Spaces draws on both personal experience and critical theory to illuminate the dynamic complexity of Caribbean culture and trace its migratory patterns throughout the Americas. Refreshments will be provided by famous Brooklyn Caribbean restaurant Gloria's.
