Suggested Reading and Films
Start with Belizean writers, particularly the novels of Zee Edgell, then continue with the catalog of Cubola Productions (www.cubola.com) catalog, a publishing company whose Belizean writers series includes six anthologies of short stories, poetry, drama, folk tales, and works by women writers. Cubola also publishes sociology, anthropology, and education texts; seek them out at any bookstore or gift shop in Belize, or order a few titles before your trip. Angelus Press (www.angeluspress.com) is the other main publisher of Belizean writers. You’ll also want to read a book—or six—by Emory King (www.emoryking.com); King arrived in Belize in 1953 when his yacht crashed on the reef at English Caye and has been talking and writing about his adopted country ever since.
