Join us this Saturday, Sept. 26, 2020 for an intimate conversation with the beloved and internationally-acclaimed author Edwidge Danticat about the transformational power of storytelling.

The exchange will highlight life journeys as two authors of Haitian descent and our commitment to ensuring more equitable access to the reading, crafting, and telling of stories in and about Haiti.

This special event is in celebration of the Sister Cities Essex Haiti’s (SCEH) 10th anniversary and the success of the community library and programs they’ve created for the children and families of Deschapelles, Haiti. See the links below for more details about their phenomenal service.

Registration is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. The event is Co-Hosted by SCEH and RJ Julia Booksellers.
