Powerful words and sweet music punctuated the usually laid-back atmosphere of the Limegrove Lifestyle Centre on Monday evening as the Citrus Book and Poetry Night continued.
The event, sponsored by the Book Source featured author Dominican Ray Harris, whose book The Truth: That is Written and Should be Known dealt with religion and spirituality. He told the crowd of fellow lawyers and family members that the book was born out of his own research in various world religions in the late 1970’s, while a student of the University of the West Indies.
The four-chapter read was completed in 2006, where it has been sold in other Caribbean countries, namely the British Virgin Islands and of course, Dominica.
Proud husband of a Barbadian wife, this was not Harris’ first time to the island, but this was his first time promoting the The Truth: That is Written and Should be Known here.
Patrons at the event lined up to buy the book and have a chat with the author about his take on spiritual matters.
After some profound messages, the talented Christal Austin took the stage to kick off the musical aspect of the show with soulful R&B stylings. Other artistes of the night included Shawn Gittens, Onika Best and Jodi Massiah.
But there was just as much action off the stage as well, with tasty treats by Ultimate Cupcakes and fresh designs by Rhaj Paul’s Evolve. (LW)
