    Anyone have any book suggestions?

    Books can be fiction, non-fiction, autobiography, social issues, short stories, poems etc -- just as long as it's based on Haiti.

    Here are two books, both written by Edwidge Danticat, that I read in early December.


    1. Breath, Eyes, Memory

    2. The Dew Breaker

    I read it a few years back, but I can't recall much of it. I will read it again sometime soon. Thank you for your book suggestions!
