St. Maarten – Local author Latoya Lake will launch her first self-published book, entitled It’s Like Déjà Vu with You’ on Friday at Holland House in Philipsburg. The launch is scheduled from 5 to 8 p.m.
The young author has something special in mind: “With the help of some very passionate women I will be taking the opportunity to turn it into a teachable moment with an emphasis on encouraging others the step out in faith and explore talents other than what is to be expected,” she wrote in a message to this newspaper.
In June, Lake already announced the birth of her first book at a writing workshop given by Indian author Tishani Doshi during the St. Maarten Book Fair at the University of St. Martin. At this workshop, she also met with local artist Ruby Bute, who said at the time that she is working on her memoirs.
