Greater Sudbury Public Library Presents Jamaican-born Canadian Author Horane Smith

August 23, 2007 - Award-winning Jamaican-born Canadian author Horane Smith will read from his works of fiction at the Main Public Library, 74 Mackenzie Street on Tuesday September 18, beginning at 6 p.m.


Mr. Smith has written on subjects such as the Underground Railroad to Canada, lynchings in America, the pirates of the Caribbean, reggae music, and slavery in North America and the Caribbean. His latest novel, Dawn at Lover's Leap, the sequel to his highly-acclaimed first novel, Lover's Leap: Based on the Jamaican Legend, was a finalist in the 2006 USA Booknews Best Book Award for Historical Fiction. His new novel, Seven Days in Jamaica, will be published next February.


Described by the late British best-selling author John Prebble as "one of our four best emerging writers," Mr. Smith was the first recipient for the BURLA Award in 2004, for Outstanding Contribution to African Canadian and Caribbean Literature. He has also been recognized with an honorary award from the Jamaica Diaspora Foundation Canada, for his outstanding contribution to Jamaican Literature. He has been described as "prolific...growing from strength to strength...and a gripping writer."


Mr. Smith's other novels are: Underground to Freedom, Port Royal, Reggae Silver and The Lynching Stream.
