Haiti on My Mind – Fundraiser with Edwidge Danticat

On September 30, Haitian-American writer Edwidge Danticat, author of  Create Dangerously, will read selections from her books and encourage donations to the fundraiser organized by the Caribbean Students Association and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority of New York. Professional photo portraits and autographed copies of Danticat’s works will be available for donations of $15 and $20.

Of Danticat’s new book, Dave Eggers, author of Zeitoun and What Is the What recently wrote, “This is the most powerful book I’ve read in years. Though delicate in its prose and civil in its tone, it hits like a freight train. It’s a call to arms for all immigrants, all artists, all those who choose to bear witness, and all those who choose to listen. And though it describes great upheaval, tragedy, and injustice, it’s full of humor, warmth, grace, and light.”
