BookIsh Plaza is proud to say it was a success yesterday at Arubadag. On this day Arubans honour their flag and the National Anthem. BookIsh Plaza was there promoting culture in books. People came out to meet&greet BookIsh Plaza and browse between the books we have. We sold books by Aruban authors, like poet/writer Quito Nicolaas who was there to sign his books and chat with the fans. We also had books by Caribbean authors available. People were interested in poetry, literature and especially children’s books. It was a great day. Can’t wait for next year around. Check out this photo-impression.

Lunch Poems with Amiri Baraka

15 03 2012

Revolutionary poet, playwright, and activist Amiri Baraka is recognized as the founder of the Black Arts Movement, a literary period that began in Harlem in the 1960s and forever changed the look, sound, and feel of American poetry. Baraka (formerly LeRoi Jones) helped to empower African American artists to establish publishing houses, journals, and university ethnic studies programs. His books continue to spark intense political and aesthetic controversy while receiving tremendous critical acclaim.
