This program features works by the prodigiously talented Haitian-American writer, Edwidge Danticat. First, a tender and heartrending father/daughter story was her own contribution to the anthology, Haiti Noir, which she edited. The reader is Tony Award-winner Anika Noni Rose. Next, Laurine Towler reads Danticat’s “New York Day Women,” in which she secretly follows her mother and discovers her leading an unexpected life.
