Edwidge Danticat, Gary Victor highlight Haitian Caribbean Book Fair in Miami’s Little Haiti


MIAMI _ A book fair in Miami’s Little Haiti neighbourhood is showcasing Haitian culture and literature.

Haitian American Book Fair

The Haitian-Caribbean Book Fair opens Saturday evening at the Little Haiti Cultural Center with presentations by Haitian novelist and playwright Gary Victor and Haitian-American novelist and Miami resident Edwidge Danticat.

The fair continues Sunday with a daylong street fair and traditional Haitian music and dancing along colorful N.E. 2nd Ave.

Libreri Mapou bookstore owner Jan Mapou tells The Miami Herald (http://hrld.us/1pcWIm2 ) that the fair aims to promote local Haitian writers to a wider audience. He says many of the writers are self-publishing their books and struggling to find a broader readership.
