Sunday links

- In his "Arts on Sunday" column in the Stabroek News, Al Creighton takes a look at a poem by the linguist and lexicographer Richard Allsop, published a while back in the Barbadian literary journal Poui.

- Also in today's Stabroek News, a fascinating and tantalising look at the 1969 Rupununi "Uprising", one of the most troubling and puzzling events in Guyana's recent history. Miranda La Rose interviews Steve Sagar, who was assistant district commissioner of the Rupununi at the time of the event.

- The Institute of Jamaica has announced the names of this year's Musgrave Award recipients (the Musgrave medals, first awarded in 1897, are for distinguished contribution in the fields of art, literature, and science).

- In the Jamaica Gleaner, Michael Robinson reviews an exhibition of recent paintings and sculpture by the celebrated "intuitive" artist Michael Parchment.

- Also in the Gleaner, Billy Hall reviews Caribbean Culture: Soundings on Kamau Brathwaite, a collection of essays on the Barbadian poet edited by Annie Paul.

- In the Trinidad and Tobago Newsday, Kevn Baldeosingh reviews a new history of Presbyterianism in Trinidad by Jerome Teelucksingh.

- Lagniappe: Signifyin' Guyana has got hold of a copy of Ian McDonald's new Selected Poems, and she offers two favourites.
