Haiti in Two Acts
Designed to reveal hidden literary and political realities, Haiti In Two Acts plays out in two parts. Act I: An expert delivers remarks about the country. Act II: Local writers respond to questions raised. In January 2010, Haiti was devastated by an earthquake that killed an estimated 300,000 people—including the president of PEN Haiti. Three years later, what has changed? What is the role of literature as Haiti rebuilds? What are the untold stories of this vibrant, expressive country?
