Time: 7pm EST

From the event website:

During this International Women’s Day conversation moderated by W. Ford Schumann Faculty Fellow in Democratic Studies Régine Jean-Charles, Évelyne Trouillot and Edwidge Danticat will read from their fiction and share their unique perspectives about Haiti’s past, present, and future.

In a recent essay, the award-winning Haitian author Trouillot writes, “…my writings, stemming from my lived experience and my aesthetic and social vision for a more beautiful and just world, are presented to readers who are not always acquainted with my reality…” The same can be said of the internationally acclaimed author Danticat whose writing set in Haiti and in the Haitian diaspora reflects a commitment to humanity, beauty, and justice.
