During The Kiwanis Club of New Providence Children’s Book Donation Drive outside Logos Book Store, Harbour Bay Shopping Centre, Nassau, recently, I bought a copy of “Alice's Adventures in Wonderland” from Logos and dropped it into their donation box. I told the Kiwanis ladies how my mother sent me to elocution lessons when we moved from Scotland to England because my Scottish accent had become mixed up with a Birmingham accent and it was difficult to understand what I said! I can’t remember how old I was, but I was younger than ten. I had to memorize pages of “Alice's Adventures in Wonderland” in order to recite them during my elocution lessons!

The Club’s Vice President Dominique Rolle was delighted with my little Alice in Wonderland tale and asked if I could give a video interview about it. I agreed and here it is! - FAY'S VIDEO INTERVIEW AT KIWANIS BOOK DONATION DRIVE

The Kiwanis Club of New Providence is a non-profit organization that is a part of Kiwanis International. They are a service club that gives back to the community through service projects – a wonderful group of very dedicated and hard working ladies!

An Island-style Writing and Wellness Retreat will be held in Governor’s Harbour, Eleuthera, Bahamas, May 18 – 23, 2019. It is a great opportunity for established or aspiring writers and will be hosted by Chrissann Nickel of Women Who Live on Rocks and Mariah Moyle of Out Island Life Bahamas.

Chrissann says on her website “This Bahamas retreat has been specially designed to provide participants with a purposeful mid-year pause to assess where you’re at and where you want to go with your writing and creative pursuits in the second half of the year.”

The dedicated Kiwanis volunteers asked to take a photo

The Kiwanis Club of New Providence are having another Children’s Book Donation Drive on Saturday, January 12th, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Logos Book Store, Harbour Bay (they had one today). They are also having the Book Donation Drive at Bookworld Stationers.

Children’s books are not necessarily expensive. At today’s Book Donation Drive, I bought “Alice in Wonderland” from Logos for just under $9 and there were some as low as around $5.

For further information on the Kiwanis Book Donation Drive, telephone 242-477-4614. It’s a very worthwhile cause. I hope one of the children will enjoy Alice in Wonderland as much as I did!
