The event includes a Book and Visual Art Exhibition, featuring several works by local authors and artists and a number of Vincentians based in the diaspora. The main highlight of the fair will be an ‘Evening of Poetry and the Arts,’ scheduled for Friday, October 14 at 7:30 p.m. at the grounds of the Open Campus.

The fair will also provide an opportunity for children and young people to share their artwork and read samples of their stories and poetry on Saturday, October 15. This is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m.

The three-day event forms part of the national Independence celebrations and seeks to encourage Vincentians to cultivate the discipline of reading a wide variety of literature, so as to enhance their literary skills and therefore broaden their perspectives on our human experiences. The literary fair is also an opportunity to showcase Vincentian talent in the literary, visual and performing art sectors of our society.

The University of the West Indies Open Campus and the Vincentian Association of Artists, Writers and Producers extend an invitation to the public and the media to participate in the activities.
