Important Moments comprises poems, stories, monologues and plays that present episodes and themes predominantly from a Tobago perspective. It alludes to Tobago as a gem, describes aspects of its environment, includes children and adult indulgences afforded by the culture, touches on growing up in a simple and rustic environment, and spans approximately one hundred years.
The book includes modern elements of crime, incest, AIDS, ethics, values, and healthy living. It also pays tribute to parents offering advice on raising their children, and shows how any presentation can be done in poetic form as evidenced by a "Vote of Thanks."
Stories of the present and long ago are embedded with glimpses of Tobago folklore. Monologues can be used for the "Spoken Word," while the book's drama can apply to stage performances or can be adapted for video presentations.
Milca Robinson Reid exemplifies versatility as a way of life, combining the embodiment of academics and the arts. Born and raised in Tobago, her academic pursuits positioned her work as an educational psychologist, educator, and psychometrician. Her involvement in the visual and performing arts, community identification, membership in two literary organizations and other non-governmental organizations, the study of English literature at secondary and tertiary levels, and a yearning for people's acceptance globally led her to become an author. She co-authored the book Tobago In Print.
