Thompson presented with book describing GB

FREEPORT, GRAND BAHAMA– Author Rudy Sawyer made a courtesy call on the Minister of State for Grand Bahama, Senator Kwasi Thompson on Monday, March 25, 2019, where he presented the Minister with a copy of his new book, ‘Grand Bahama Treasure & Tour Guide: Settlements and Freeport.’

The book is a comprehensive fact-based compilation of information about the entire island of Grand Bahama, including every settlement and community from East Grand Bahama to West Grand Bahama.

Sawyer said that the book took him several years to write and produce, because of the amount of research involved in gathering the facts about the island.

Minister Thompson congratulated Sawyer for his hard work and dedication in completing the project and noted that it will be a valuable resource not just for Bahamians, but for visitors as well.

“I know that you had mentioned to me some time back that you wanted to work on this project and so I’m glad to see that it is completed,” Thompson told the author.

“What I like about this book is that it is specifically about Grand Bahama. There are many books about the Bahamas and about Nassau, so it is good to see such a comprehensive project on Grand Bahama.”
