Dean & Chief Librarian Pamela Gillespie with an array of works by Dominican authors. Many thanks to Prof. Herbert Seignoret for making all the event arrangements.

Titles received include: “A Visitor’s Guide to Kweyol,” Ras Mo’s “tjebe/hold on” CD, “Rain on a Tin Roof,” and “The Island Man Sings His Song.”  All eleven titles are now being processed and should be available for use shortly.
