The Grenada National Museum’s Dr James D Pitt Voices of Grenada Lecture Series, invites the general public to a presentation by British Historical Fiction writer, Jane Harris, at the museum on Young Street, on Wednesday, 10 September, from 5:15 pm to 7:00 pm.
Harris is a writer of fiction and screenplays. She is the author of bestselling historical novels, The Observations (2007) – shortlisted for the Orange Prize for Fiction 2007 – and Gillespie and I (2011), both published to critical acclaim.
This year she was selected for Trading Tales, a residency programme that will take her to Trinidad and Grenada. British Council, in partnership with Glasgow’s Mitchell Library, asked writers to explore the relationship Scotland and the Caribbean share as part of a programme of activity for the Commonwealth Games.
While in Grenada, Harris will continue with research for her third novel which is partially set in Grenada in the year 1765 and which is based on a true story. Her presentation will include a reading from Sugar Birds.
