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.

I was happy to include her
in our display of Caribbean children's books, and in our Trini authors section even.
To me she
