Celebrating the publication of AYITI (Finishing Line Press) by Daniel Wolff.

"Haiti is a complex jigsaw puzzle where the pieces constantly change shape. Daniel Wolff changes the shape of his narrative from page to page to give us, the readers, a glimpse into a place we are taught not to see, not to smell, not to understand. If we did see, if we did smell, if we did understand the civil war that is Haiti, we would demand answers" -- Richard Morse, RAM

Denize Lauture:Poet/ Children's Book Author

"Invoking the dreams of his Haitian ancestors, who now haunt his memories, Denizé Lauture's poetry is imbued with a sense of never forgetting, reminding us all that the story of enduring must continue to be written, spoken, and dreamt. Writing and performing in Creole, French, and English, it's impossible to turn away from Lauture's moving and delightful poetry, which reverberates with all that he has experienced."
