Booksmith is proud to host an evening in celebration of the new Voice of Witness book Lavil: Life, Love, and Death in Port-Au-Prince, with editors Peter Orner, Dr. Evan Lyon, and Laura Lampton Scott. Please join them.
Seven years after the deadliest earthquake in the history of the Western Hemisphere struck Haiti, the island nation remains in crisis, all but ignored by the international community. At the center of this crisis is Lavil—“The City” in Kreyol, as Port-au-Prince is known to Haitians—the cultural, political, and economic capital of Haiti and home to over 2.5 million resilient souls.
This immersive and engrossing oral history collection gives voice to the continuing struggle of Haitian people to live, love and prosper while trying to rebuild their city and country after disasters both natural and man-made.
Free, an RSVP is encouraged but not required.
