The Christmas season has brought a lot of buzz to the store. Barbadians who browse the Haggatt Hall store gush how they are truly impressed that a bookstore has decided to support local, as many bookstores in Barbados mainly push overseas publications.

They are even more impressed about the wide range of books from many genres that locals have written; having previously been unaware.

On Saturday 20th December they’ll feature another group of authors along with a book launch for Monica Newlands‘ Children’s book entitled “Land of the Hexagons“.
