Berry celebrates 90 years of poetry, stories and song in 2014.
James was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease nine years ago and has been in
residential care, a number of care homes and has spent many months in hospital.
Despite the serious nature of his illness he continues to enjoy listening to
poetry and talking about everything under the sun.
Collaborating organisations and contributors on the night will bear witness to
Berry's contribution to the transformation of the national, Caribbean and
international literary landscapes.
Society’s programme ‘Singing for the Brain’ is a beneficiary of
the James Berry Trust. Part of the proceeds of this Benefit will be donated to
‘Singing for the Brain’.
