On November 4, Edwidge Danticat will be at the Free Library of Philadelphia to read from and sign copies of her latest book, Create Dangerously: The Immigrant Artist at Work.
Edwidge Danticat was born in Haiti in 1969 and moved to the United States when she was twelve. Inspired by Albert Camus’ lecture, and combining memoir and essay, Create Dangerously is an eloquent and moving expression of Danticat’s belief that immigrant artists are obliged to bear witness when their countries of origin are suffering from violence, oppression, poverty, and tragedy.
The event next week will also feature author, poet, editor, and translator Linh Dinh, who will discuss his debut novel, Love Like Hate. Don’t miss your chance to meet either of these talented authors!
