We also had entertainment with two young poets presenting live poetry to the audience as well as pan music. There was a rich range of material to suit everyone,” she told Dominica Vibes News.Ms. Pattullo explained that the book exchange was organized to increase interest and love for reading and to make books available particularly for persons who like to read but cannot find or afford to buy them. Hence, apart from exchanging a book, participants were also able to purchase books at very reasonable prices from $1.00 to $5.00.Meantime Ms. Pattullo informed Dominica Vibes News that the Nature Island Literary Festival will be hosting another book exchange on 30th July, 2011 at the Roseau Market.“We enjoyed doing the book exchange and are looking forward to the second one this month end in Roseau.
