Historian Sir Howard Fergus launches Commemorative look at 50 years of Montserrat’s Festival

Montserrat’s foremost author and historian Sir Howard Fergus takes a look at the island’s most enduring cultural festival in his new book ‘Festival at Fifty’.

The book launch for the new 145-page project is scheduled for Wednesday 29 August at the Montserrat National Trust in collaboration with the Open Campus of the University of the West Indies.

Festival at Fifty includes a foreword by the Honourable Premier Reuben T. Meade and looks at the history of the cultural festival which began in December of 1962.

The author will also be releasing a new collection of poetry called ‘Obama and Other Poems’ and is expected to read several of the selections during the evening event. This book, which was published in Jamaica by Arawak Publishers, it honours the US President who is up for re-election in November this year.

The ever busy writer has also reprinted copies of his autobiography ‘Road From Long Ground’, which will also be available at the book launch, starting at 5:00 pm in Salem at the National Trust.
