(VIDEO) 'Sand in My Shoes' with author Marina Gottlieb-Sarles
Grand Bahama Island - As Bahamian author Marina Gottlieb Sarles gears up to release her second book; “ The War Horses”, she is simultaneously releasing the second publishing of her first book; “ Sand in My Shoes.”
In this video interview Marina transports us on a journey to the early days of Grand Bahama and Abaco where she was inspired by her experiences in the Bahamas through her parents and the many Bahamians she grew up with, to write her first book, “Sand in My Shoes.”
Marina tells of some of the places that “Sand in My Shoes” has taken her; including The Bahamas National Art Gallery,” where she received warm accolades as she read excerpts of her stories to a mostly black audience. They were amazed at Marina’s ability to speak fluent Bahamian dialect. Marina also passionately expresses her pride to be a part of the Bahamian artistic community that operates free from any form of racial divide.

This interview is the first of a two-part series. In part two we discuss Marina's new book,” The War Horses,” a book so powerful that the author of this article got teary eyed whilst conducting the interview.
