“So Spoke the Earth” at Libreri Mapou

On January 27, 2013, the contributors of  SO SPOKE THE EARTH were at Libreri Mapou, 5919 Northeast 2nd Avenue Miami, FL 33137, to read from the multilingual anthology of literature about Haiti. SO SPOKE THE EARTH explores the country’s past, present and future as experienced by its diverse inhabitants over the past four decades. Presenting each work in its original language (English, French, and Haitian Creole), the book features the accounts of both Haitian and non-Haitian writers and their attempts to grapple with the impact left on them by their personal experiences with the island-nation. Through various narratives and poems, the literary legacy and unique history of the island are highlighted in content and style. This is an important anthology about Haiti in that it is a celebration of Haitian spirit, multiculturalism and diversity. An eclectic, international combination of established and emerging writers.
