Former MP Buchanan to launch second book Tuesday

Former Member of Parliament Paul Buchanan will launch his second book ‘Jones Town Trench Town :the Journey back, on Tuesday evening at the Mona Visitors’ Lodge, University of the West Indies, starting at 6:30 pm.

The book, as described by the author, “recounts the greatness that both South St Andrew communities and their immediate environs experienced in the mid-20th century. It tells of their impact on the national landscape in sports, culture, academia and politics.

“As the author, I speak as an eyewitness to their transcendent accomplishments in the various spheres of our development. Unfortunately, the missteps made in the decades since our Independence, have led to the degradation evident in both communities, as indeed others throughout the country,” Buchanan said.

“Importantly, the book offers some solutions to engender the inspiration needed for national redemption. It also recollects my years at Wolmer’s Boys’ School, as well as the exceptional achievements of the traditional high schools on the fields of sports,” he went on. Read more
