International Art of Storytelling – Caribbean 2005
Bahamas • Puerto Rico • Haiti • Trinidad & Tobago
The theme for AOS 2005 was “The Art of Storytelling: A Pan-Caribbean Experience.” Miami-Dade Public Library staff visited libraries in the Caribbean Basin and met with professional colleagues from Puerto Rico, Haiti, the Bahamas and Trinidad & Tobago. A month later, the Caribbean partners visited the Miami-Dade Library System, sharing their cultures and expertise. Among the various components of that year’s International Festival Day was a Caribbean Book Fair with participating librarians, authors and storytellers.
