Trinidad & Tobago National Library Named for Naipaul

From the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Herald:

Who said a prophet is not honoured in his own country, even if he has has lived away from home for nearly 40 years?

The Trinidad and Tobago Government has announced plans to name the soon-to-be-opened National Library Complex in the capital after its famous son Sir Vidia S (VS) Naipaul, who recently won the Nobel prize for literature.

The complex which is nearing completion will be named the \" Sir Vidia S Naipaul National Library Complex of Trinidad and Tobago,\" the Sunday Guardian quoted Education Minister Ganga Singh as saying. \"There is no better way to encourage our children to read, and our scholars to excel, with this icon of achievement held up before them,\" Singh said.
