Famed 'Green Days by the River' author Michael Anthony will be giving a reading at the Royal Botanic Gardens on March 17, 2018.
In celebration of 25 years of ALTA, the North/North West Region of adult literacy tutors will host an afternoon of Readings Under the Trees on Saturday, March 17 from 2:30 PM at the Botanical Gardens.
Anthony's iconic book, which is set in South Trinidad in 1952, follows an ambitious African village boy who struggles with poverty and his sick father, finding solace in a wealthy Indian farmer and his captivating daughter, until he falls for a city girl.
The book was recently converted into a film directed by Michael Mooleedhar.
The event will host new and seasoned writers such as Michael Anthony, Lisa Allen Agostini, Lyndon Baptiste, Barbara Jenkins, Debbie Jacob and Kevin Jared Hosein sharing their work with ALTA tutors, students and friends of ALTA.
