Local literary programmes such as L.I.F.E. and Rotary Central Cayman Islands will be on hand to provide the community with more information on their efforts and how anyone interested can get involved.
“I started the book fair to highlight the local writers in Cayman and connect them with the community so they could have a positive impact on Cayman’s literary community both young and old. It’s a passion project I hope becomes part of Cayman’s community, and an event everyone looks forward to each year,” said Elke Feuer, Founder of CayWriters and the Book Fair.
