Independence, Cecil Foster’s newest novel, relates the coming of age of two Barbadian teens to that of the nation they live in. As a writer, journalist and scholar, Foster has written on everything from immigration bureaucracy to what it’s like to pick tobacco from dawn ‘til dusk to the Caribana festival. Join Foster for brunch as he reads and discusses Independence with moderator and Spur festival director Helen Walsh.
Using the narrative form to explore complex subjects and difficult topics, Spur’s Books and Brunch series confronts everyday truths over brioche and brie.
Admission to this event includes a light meal.
