Belize’s Ambassador to Taiwan delivers lecture on Zee Edgell’s “Beka Lamb” at Taipei International Book Exhibition

Posted: Wednesday, February 21, 2024. 1:50 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Belize’s Ambassador to Taiwan, Dr. Candice Pitts delivered an interactive lecture today at the 2024 Taipei International Book Exhibition (TiBE).

The lecture was on Zee Edgell’s “Beka Lamb,” which is a seminal text in Belizean literary canon, and a children’s book entitled “Jada Goes to Belize” by Jolene Radar.

“Inherent in diplomatic relationships is the promotion of cultural understanding between the peoples of the respective countries. My lecture demonstrates that Belizean books are a window to Belize that offers Taiwanese a view of Belize’s history, society, cultures, and peoples. I therefore encouraged the audience to visit our pavilion and to read more about Belize. As a former English-Literature major and educator, I was quite in my element here as well,” Ambassador Pitts stated.

TiBE is one of the largest international exhibitions in Taiwan that promotes reading.

The 2024 Taipei International Book Exhibition features 509 exhibitors from 34 countries, including Belize.

The Embassy of Belize has on display several books about Belize at the Diversity and Sustainability Theme Pavilion, with other countries such as Chile, Argentina, and Austria.
