Calabash 2010, a Much Needed Bright Spot, for Jamaica’s Tourism

Calabash 2010 generated some of the best news to come out of Jamaica this year.

The international media sat up and took notice of the literary extravaganza that took place in Treasure Beach recently and gave the island some much needed “good press”, most notably from the Daily Beast and the Standard.

The Wall Street Journal also had this to say, “Calabash is the sort of literary festival to whom the label literary festival applies only because there’s no neat phrase for reggae-fied, rootsy-intellectual, interdisciplinary extravaganza for those who worship words, abhor pretension and believe that smart and fun need not be mutually exclusive.” WSJ June 6 2010
