The 2014 IndyList

The 2014 ArtsEtc Independence Reading List

Once again, ArtsEtc is pleased to bring its annual Independence Reading List. The IndyList, as we like to call it, is a selection of 12 Barbadian books to make friends with over the coming year.

The list, now in its fourth year of publication, is part of the Editors' ongoing "Mapping Our Literature" mission which promotes awareness of and celebrates Barbadian books and authors. Each year, we recommend new, classic and noteworthy titles in fiction and non-fiction, poetry, and children’s literature. The mapping will expand shortly to include reviews of chosen books and information about the authors.

We wish to thank The National Library Service, Days Books, The Frank Collymore Literary Endowment Committee, UWI Bookstore, and the Barbados Association of Reading for their continued forward thinking and support of the IndyList. We invite schools, reading groups and book clubs interested in learning more about the IndyList to contact us.

Happy Independence—all year long!
