Edwidge Danticat - Claire of the Sea Light ♦

Tuesday, September 17, 2013 - 7:00pm to 7:59pm

Set in a seaside village in Haiti, Danticat’s fifth work of fiction has the compression and lyricism of a fable. Centering on seven-year-old Claire, the tale looks back to the people she’s lost in her short life, even as her future hangs in suspense. Nozias, her fisherman father, struggles to raise Claire alone after his wife’s death, but thinks she would fare better in a different family.

Beer and wine will be available.
