Nature Island Literary Festival gets cash injection

CIBC's Business Support Officer, Rhona Lawrence

Dominica’s annual Nature Island Literary Festival and Book Fair has been given a cash injection by one corporate citizen.

Financial institution CIBC First Caribbean International Bank on Monday made an EC$5000.00 donation to the festival.

The bank’s Business Support Officer, Rhona Lawrence, who made the presentation, said First Caribbean was all about total development, and regards the festival as a forum that helps push forward that aspiration.

“We hope with this financial contribution that this year’s festival will be another success,” Lawrence said.

The festival organizing committee’s chairman, Alwyn Bully, was on hand to receive the $5000.00 cheque, which he labeled a generous contribution.

He said the festival was into its fifth year and was thankful for the support of entities like CIBC First Caribbean.

Bully is promising top rate writers, poets and other acts at the 2012 festival, including Canadian-resident Dominican-born judge and writer Irvin Andre, who has penned the life stories of many prominent Dominican politicians and other personalities.

    They need to have an adult literacy faction. There are too many people here that have gone to school and still cannot read or write except for their name.
