Accelerated Books

Stephanie Gunby, who has published her first book, The Clever Clouds, read excerpts to pre-teens during the Public Library's summer reading programme.

This week (Monday, 25 July) GIS Spotlight eases you into book publishing, celebrates human capital development and revisits an evocative exhibit.

Getting a book published seems such a daunting prospect, but see how this can be a mere excuse, for you can actually aim for a book in a day - the theme of the public library's summer reading workshop. Hear a visiting international author and programme conductor explain how you too can make words jump off a page and grab the reader.

Also, take time out to meet Cayman's young author and illustrator who explains what inspired her to put together her first book, The Clever Clouds, in just a couple of weeks.

Next, it's off to the Human Capital Development Agency, which spearheads Cayman's drive to become a modern, well-equipped workforce. Learn about the strategy to hone employees' existing skills, adapt to changing needs and maintain a competitive edge.

Finally, take a trip down memory lane with the National Gallery's Persistence of Memory exhibition. Watch as local artists bring their childhood reminiscences to life, using archival materials, multi-media and the fine arts.

Produced by Government Information Services, GIS Spotlight highlights government's services and solutions regarding issues that concern and affect you.

The weekly programme now airs on Cayman27 at 8:30 p.m. on Mondays, and 6:00 p.m. on Saturdays. All stories seen in this week's show can also be found on the GIS Marketing and Communications website: www.gis.ky.

Comments and suggestions about the programme are always welcome. Viewers can provide feedback by e-mailing GIS Spotlight.
