St. Lucia Honors Laureates

By Linda Tancs

January 23 marks Nobel Laureate Day, an annual event in the Caribbean island of St. Lucia celebrating its two winners of the prestigious award, Sir Arthur Lewis (Economics) and Derek Walcott (Literature). The day tops off a current weeklong celebration of the honorees, which focuses this year on Lewis’s prize in light of the struggling financial climate. Situated north of Barbados, this relatively unspoiled bit of paradise has much to recommend itself, including its twin volcanic peaks, the Pitons, a World Heritage Site. Although nicknamed Helen of the West Indies after the literary telling of Helen of Troy, its beauty is no myth.
