PHILIPSBURG–Charlotte Brookson Academy (CBA) of the Performance Arts recently received a gift of books, in time to include material in its holiday season show.

  The “We Christmas Village” show features CBA students in theatre, music and dance performances at Philipsburg Cultural Centre today, Thursday, at 7:30pm.

  CBA instructor Nzinga Lake ordered three books for CBA, including National Symbols of St. Martin, as part of the “Build Back St. Martin Libraries with Books!” drive by House of Nehesi Publishers (HNP).

  The publisher added the Fête booklet and two other titles free of charge, which Lake received November 20, said HNP President Jacqueline Sample.

  Arnia’s and Van Dorp bookstores are participating in the post-hurricane book drive.

  “It’s a jollification call island-wide,” said Sample, to “buy one copy of the popular history book National Symbols of St. Martin for a school, classroom, public library, office or home library of your choice and get one free copy of another HNP book like Love Songs Make You Cry.”
