I spoke with Debbie Jacob, a librarian from Ohio who has made Trinidad her home for the last 31 years. She is the head librarian at the International School of Port of Spain and is starting a library at the Royal Jail in the Trinidad capital (which I am absolutely going to ask her to write about for this blog). She is also a writer whose book Wishing for Wings is in the new Caribbean eBook Subscription Collection. Debbie reiterated what I had been hearing from other librarians.

Debbie Jacob is a journalist who teaches English and the Media and Ancient World history at The International School of Port of Spain. She earned a BA in Anthropology from Ohio State University and an MEd from Framingham University in Massachusetts. She has a weekly education column in the Guardian and she is currently completing a BA in history at OSU while working on an MPhil in Cultural Studies at UWI. She wrote the pioneering TV drama Sugar Cane Arrows. Although she was born in the US, she considers herself to be a true-true Trini. Legend of the St Ann¹s Flood is her first published book.
A Note from Joanne: When I interviewed American born Debbie on camera for our SUN TV display at NALIS, I asked what brought her to Trinidad. She first heard of and fell in love with Trinidad through V.S. Naipaul's "Miguel Street" and had to see for herself if there was actually a real place with such colourful characters. "I've always wanted to be, not just an author, but a Trinidadian author," she explained. I was happy to include her in our display of Caribbean children's books, and in our Trini authors section even. To me she is Trini through love, if not by birth.
