Jamaica: Hodder Education to relaunch Caribbean classics

Hodder Education will relaunch its Caribbean Writers Series, now called Caribbean Contemporary Classics, on March 22.

The move will reintroduce readers to some of the most acclaimed works of renowned Caribbean authors and provide a sneak-peek into two brand new titles written by current lead authors represented by the publisher.

“The novels in this Caribbean Contemporary Classics collection were written from around the mid-1900s to the present day, and we are delighted that we got the opportunity to publish these titles. They include works from iconic Caribbean authors such as Sam Selvon, Jean D’Costa, Michael Anthony, Trevor Rhone, and Victor Reid. With this launch, we hope to reintroduce these novels to a new generation of readers. We hope new readers are captivated by the new worlds they are invited to explore,” said Denise Watts-Lawrence, head of Caribbean marketing, Hodder Education.

Watts-Lawrence said there is much more in store from the publishing house beyond the relaunch of its Caribbean Contemporary Classics as they plan to continue to “unearth and showcase the incredible gifts and talents of our Caribbean people on the world stage”.
