(CHARLESTOWN, NEVIS)- Another local author is set to launch a book on the island of Nevis.
Mrs. Cynthia Grenyion who is employed as an Education Officer at the Education Department, is set to launch her book ‘Mr. Circle Man,’ on Saturday, June 13, 2015 at the Anglican Church Hall in Charlestown, at 3:00 p.m.
Mr. Circle Man is about a little boy whose physical appearance of being chubby prompts his
aunt to give him the nickname Mr. Circle Man.
Instead of being upset with his new name, he considers himself “first class” and enjoys exploring
his environment while learning about concepts, positive values, and attitudes.
He is a great learner. In fact, he feels so good about himself and what he has learned, that he
anticipates a name change!
