March 11, 2002 – EveryTing, a Cruz Bay gift shop, will host a book signing from 5 to 8 p.m. Tuesday of Elaine Campbell's "The Whistling Bird: Women Writers of the Caribbean."
"It's got a lot of interesting stories," EveryTing owner Joan Cook said. The book contains poetry, drama and fiction by 29 female writers from 13 Caribbean nations. There are none included from the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Campbell, a part-time St. John resident, retired last year from the writing and humanistic studies program faculty at Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge. The book is co-authored by Piererette Frickey, who is a member of the Romance languages faculty at Georgia State University and translated materials from the French- and Spanish-speaking Caribbean.
Champagne will be served at the book signing. Call Cook at 693-5820 for more information.
