The Albert Lowe Museum has invited me to appear at a book signing event at the museum on Thursday, June 29. This will be my last signing before I head back to Los Angeles for the summer, and part proceeds from every copy of Those Who Stayed sold that day will benefit the museum.
If you’re on Green Turtle Cay next Thursday, I hope you’ll drop by and say hello!
And, I’m excited to announce that the folks at the Sand Dollar Shoppe have invited Alton Lowe and me to appear in-store for a book signing event on Saturday, May 13th! (Which happens to be the day before Mother’s Day, so if you’re looking for a gift for Mom, come on by.)
The Sand Dollar Shoppe is located on Bay Street, just opposite the Abaco Beach Resort, and Alton and I will be in-store from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
For more information, contact the shop at (242) 367-4405 or get in touch with me directly.
Every Bahamian knows the name Ronnie Butler. Dubbed “the godfather of Bahamian music,” his calypso rhythms and satirical lyrics have been woven into the country’s cultural tapestry for more than fifty years.
What some may not realize, however, is that Butler’s son and namesake – known as Ron – is also a multi-talented entertainer. And though he has sung and acted on stages the world over, Ronnie Butler Jr. has not performed in his home country for decades.
If you haven’t yet bought tickets for An Evening to Remember, taking place at Bluff House Beach Resort & Marinaon January 7, you’ve got less than two weeks! We need to provide a final headcount a week before the event, meaning tickets will only be sold until December 31. No tickets will be available for purchase at the door.

It’s Museum Monday! Today’s photo shows Captain Roland Roberts (left) and Harold Lowe with a large turtle. During the late 1800s and early 1900s, turtle fishing was a lucrative occupation. Whereas a full day’s work earned a Green Turtle Cay labourer less than two shillings, one hawksbill turtle shell could bring in £8-10.
