The Guanima Press Books for Students (GPBS) project aims to put copies of Patricia Glinton-Meicholas’ newest book Lusca and Other Fantastic Tales, for free, in the hands of thousands of Bahamian students in New Providence and the Family Islands.

“My wife and I want to encourage young Bahamians to read more as an avenue to greater personal development and enjoyment. We want them to know how vital it is to spend all their life reading, learning, gathering information and knowledge from books and other sources,” say Mr Meicholas, whose brainchild GPBS is.
