Written by Elma Felix, Ti Kay Nou will walk the reader through small wooden houses which are a disappearing part of the local Saint Lucian landscape. All eleven districts on the island are represented, making Ti Kay Nou the first publication to specifically focus on traditional vernacular architecture within Saint Lucia.
Notable contributors include Her Excellency Dame Pearlette Louisy, Eric Milton Branford, and the famous Jah Lamb, who all share special stories about the Ti Kay, the role it plays within our society and the benefits of preserving our built heritage. Excerpts from The Antilles, Nobel Laureate speech of the Honorable Derek Walcott, introduces the reader to the concept of our vanishing history.
A launch for Ti Kay Nou will take place on September 29 2013 at the St. Lucia House in Brooklyn, New York. This launch is held in association with the Saint Lucia Mission and the Consulate General of Saint Lucia in New York Books and special edition prints will be on sale.
