Maxwell Blackwood, the Toronto based publisher of the Jamaican Xpress News will be holding court on Sunday August 14th at the Royal Canadian Legion on Irwin Rd in Etobicoke. The well-known writer will be launching a new book at the 2pm event.
The new book is entitled the Divine Order of Authority: Law and Mathematics. “The entire theme of this book is to let readers realize that Law and Mathematics are part of the divine order of authority,” said Blackwell. “This book is intended to stimulate ideas and concepts and lead the readers to think for themselves objectively, on matters of importance, spiritually, academically, and mentally. It will help to foster clarity on subject matters that may not even be knowable.”
Part philosophy, part autobiography and very much a social commentary on Black Culture, Blackwell tells this non-fiction title through the voice of a pastoral preacher. Although originally from Jamaica, the author identifies himself as a Nubian.
When he isn’t writing books, Blackwood publishes the print and online Jamaican Express newspaper. His writing goal in both media is “to encourage, inform, educate and entertain its readers in print and online and to give a voice to the many who do not have the opportunity to express themselves freely.”
