Sun, Sea, and Books Make This Festival an Enticing Destination

From a New York Times story by Anderson Tepper headlined “Sun, Sea and Books Make This Festival an Enticing Destination”:

The sun is shining, the waves are lapping against the shore, and the crowds are filing into a giant tent for the first sessions of the day at the Calabash International Literary Festival, on Jamaica’s low-key southern coast.

It’s Saturday morning, and a wonder that people are awake at all — many, including writers, were up until the wee hours at the reggae concert next door, which capped the opening night’s literary programs. Private tents dot the beach behind the stage, where some festivalgoers have slept.
