Time For Read­ing with The STAR!

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Star Pub­lish­ing, Mae Wayne, has been lament­ing the fact that as we cel­e­brate No­bel Lau­re­ate Week, the is­land has no proper book­store. This in spite of one of this is­land’s lau­re­ates, Derek Wal­cott, be­ing a writer and the other, Sir Arthur Lewis, hav­ing been pub­lished.

In light of this STAR Pub­lish­ing Com­pany is now dis­tribut­ing for whole­sale, and of­fer­ing for retail, a wide se­lec­tion of books. On of­fer is a range from dif­fer­ent gen­res such as chil­dren’s books, adult fic­tion, po­etry and self-help.

High on the list are a num­ber of ti­tles from our amaz­ing lo­cal au­thors such as Ken­del Hip­polyte, Garth St. Omer, John Robert Lee, Jane King, Rick Wayne and, of course, No­bel Lau­re­ate Derek Wal­cott.

You also don’t want to miss out on pub­li­ca­tions from around the re­gion like the award-win­ning books ‘The Whale House’ by Sharon Mil­lar, ‘As Flies to What­less Boys’ by Robert An­toni and ‘Sus­pended Sen­tences’ by Mark McWatt.

There are also chil­dren’s favourites: ‘The Gruf­falo’, ‘The Snail and the Whale’, ‘Di­ary of a Wimpy Kid’, ‘The Harry Pot­ter’ se­ries and ‘The Fault in Our Stars’.

In the com­ing weeks and months the STAR aims to un­veil other events in­clud­ing read­ing nights, book sign­ings and spo­ken word events.

And so as we cel­e­brate No­bel Lau­re­ate Week the STAR urges ev­ery­one to get in the habit of read­ing. Con­tact us or come view our se­lec­tion at The Yard.
