The launch of the book took place at UTT’s John S. Donaldson, Creativity Campus in Port of Spain and featured a reading from the book and reflections on the work of the celebrated author as well as the presence of real live carnival characters in keeping with the celebratory theme. Speaking before an audience of stakeholders including students and graduates of UTT’s Master of Arts in Carnival Studies programme, Dr. Liverpool explained, “I wrote the book to let you remember: always sing the human song.”
During his remarks, Minister Karim emphasized that government continues to put great emphasis on the creative industry. He observed that the book was two hundred years in the making and that he was eagerly looking forward to the next volume. He expressed the hope that not only students of the programme would be exposed to it, but that it would be brought to the attention of all students.
