University of Miami English Department Chairman Zack R. Bowen introduces Barbadian author George Lamming, Miami poet Joan Kurzban, Kwadwo Kamau of Virginia Commonwealth University, and Guyanese writer Mickey Anderson. Lamming reads from his novel In The Castle Of My Skin, an autobiographical novel telling the story of a boy growing upon a small Caribbean island in the underdeveloped third world. In this chapter, he is 18 and preparing to journey to Trinidad, while his mother warns him about what might happen, that he may never eat a good meal again, and so on. Kurzban reads a poem about her father. Kamau reads a passage from his fiction. Mickey Anderson of Georgetown, Guyana, reads some Guyanese proverbs.
