This week is being celebrated as "Book Week" in Belize. We'll feature books written by Belizeans.

Have you read our first feature?


"Beka Lamb" (1982) is the first novel written by Mrs. Zelma "Zee" Edgell. It took ten years to write the novel from idea to publication and was the first book to be published in newly-independent Belize.

The novel won Britain's Fawcett Society Book Prize which is awarded annually to a work of fiction which contributes to an understanding of women's positions in society. The book received much international acclaim, making Zee Edgell the first Belizean author to achieve such success.

Other publications from Zee Edgell include "In Times Like These" (1991), The Festival of San Joaquin (1997) and "Time and the River" (2007).

“The House of Snakes”, “the Representative” and “Bertie the Bullfrog and His Neighbors” are just three of the stories that can be found in this Belizean book. Have you read this one?

“Pataki Full” (1991) is a compilation of seven short stories written by Governor General of Belize H.E. Sir Colville Young.

In the book, which was published in September 1991, Sir Colville Young details first-hand insight into the reality of Belizean society using his wit and satire to highlight lifestyles and socio-cultural aspects of that time.

In 2015, Sir Colville celebrated a historic and notable milestone when he officially launched a Chinese translation of “Pataki Full” while on a visit to Taiwan.

Sir Colville Young has also authored a series of other stories and books in Belize. His play “Riding Haas” is featured in an anthology of plays titled “Ping Wing Juk Me” (1998).
