National Caribbean American Heritage Month is about two weeks away, so please mark your calendars for the following events and plan to come out to the Central Library for the 7th Annual Caribbean Film Festival.  Additionally, there are several other events in honor of Caribbean American Heritage Month including the 2nd Annual Anancy Festival, the very first ever Caribbean Spelling Bee, and book launches by two authors of Caribbean heritage, Nicki Salcedo and Dr. Noel Leo Erskine.

Seven films will be screened over 3 days, and for the first time films will be screened from Curacao, the Bahamas and Belize. There will also be films from Cuba, Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago. Please come out and support all of them if you can.

For the young and young at heart, come and be regaled with Anancy stories at the Anancy Festival.  Or, if you prefer enjoy the first ever Atlanta Caribbean Spelling Bee!  Prizes will be offered for first, second and third places.

Author Nicki Salcedo will present, discuss and sign her first novel ‘All Beautiful Things’, and Dr. Noel Leo Erskine will launch, discuss and sign his new book, ‘Plantation Church: How African-American Religion Was Born in Caribbean Slavery’.

All events are FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC and will be held at the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System Central Library (unless otherwise noted) located at One Margaret Mitchell Square Atlanta, GA 30303.  For more information call 404.730.1904  Paid parking is available in the many surrounding parking lots, but the library is very accessible by MARTA from the Five Points and Peachtree Center stations.
