From the Office of the Provost:
I am pleased to invite you to this year’s Caribbean Writers Series event, “You’re Better Off Here,” on Monday, April 10, on the Queens campus. This year features Lisa Harewood, a Barbadian writer, director, and producer. We will view “Auntie,” a short film Ms. Harewood wrote and directed, which explores migration, matriarchal kinship structures, and Bajan life. After a screening of “Auntie,” Ms. Harewood will discuss her film, the broader Barrel Stories project, and creating Caribbean work that fulfills her production company’s aims.
The event will be held in the auditorium of St. Louise de Marillac Hall, beginning at 1:45 p.m., and will include a reception with food after the event.
Part of the Academic Lecture Series, this event is a great fit with the University’s mission to think globally and engage in questions of social justice while operating in a metropolitan setting. It is cosponsored by the Office of the Provost, the President’s Multicultural Advisory Committee, Division of Student Affairs, Office of Multicultural Affairs, St. John’s University Libraries, Caribbean Students Association, Department of English, and the Office of Global Studies.
I encourage you to attend this event, and to bring your classes if applicable to your curriculum.
