Alliance in Santiago de Cuba favors Caribbean bibliographic funds

Santiago de Cuba, May 25 (Prensa Latina) The alliance between Casa del Caribe (Caribbean House) and the Elvira Cape Provincial Library aims at strengthening the bibliographic funds for the region's literary studies, a need for researchers and specialists.

Sources from the Claustrofobias promotion website noted that a new stage in relations between both institutions is beginning, on the occasion of the First Workshop on those issues, as part of the 40th edition of the International Caribbean Festival in July.

They explained that at each of those meetings the ‘Elvira Cape’ will open bibliographic exhibitions with literary, historic and cultural titles, while donations will be made to increase those funds.

The tribute to the 50th anniversary of the Oriente publishing house, the first national publishing house outside Havana and with a notable publication of texts on Caribbean topics, will be the focus of this renewal of the ties between Casa…and the Library.

Another significant moment, linked to that seal, will be the launch of ‘Las Pequeñas Palabras’, written by the Santiago-based journalist and writer Reinaldo Cedeño, the most recent winner of the National Cultural Journalism Award.

On July 5 and 6, the event will be devoted to studies on Caribbean literature and will pay tribute to Santiago-born Jesus Cos Causse and Barbadian Edward Kamau Brathwaite, two important figures in the region’s literary panorama.

The Cuban poet, also known as ‘the Black Don Quixote of the Caribbean,’ will turn 76 in October and the Barbadian poet died in February 2020.

Preparations for the ‘Fiesta del Fuego’ (Fire Festival) are underway in this city in the midst of the difficult situation caused by Covid-19, which has forced to develop part of the program virtually and another segment at face-to-face events whenever possible.
