Belvidere Estate – Fedon’s House, a book on Julien Fedon who freed all slaves in Grenada in 1795 has been presented to Prime Minister Keith Mitchell. The author, EVERYBODY’S Magazine publisher, Herman Hall, is promoting the book in Trinidad & Tobago and Grenada before he moves on to Jamaica and other Caribbean states.
On Thursday, 5:30 pm, the book is scheduled for launching at the historic Marryshow House, St. George’s, Grenada, home of the UWI in Grenada; Friday, Sep. 23, 5:30pm, a formal launch will be in Gouyave, hometown of Olympian Kirani James and the Mighty Sparrow.
While the setting of this easy reading history book is Belvidere Estate, Grenada, Hall emphasizes that the book is related to readers across the Caribbean and the Caribbean diaspora. It is a presentation of plantation life in colonial West Indies and growing up in pre-independence English speaking Caribbean.
