World Wide Web: Edwidge Danticat

According to our blog’s statistics, our most popular posts and resources are specific to authors or novels that we’ve featured in our book group.  Edwidge Danticat is at the top of that list of most searched for authors.  So for the world wide web post today, I thought I’d highlight some interesting online resources on Danticat.  For those of you not familiar with Danticat, she is the award winning Haitian-American author of Krik? Krak!; Breath, Eyes, Memory; The Farming of Bones; Brother, I’m Dying; and Create Dangerously, among other titles.

One of the best places to get information about Danticat is her facebook page.  The page isn’t maintained by Danticat, but by her publisher, so it has all kinds of information on new publications, speaking engagements, interviews, etc.  As so many of our students use facebook regularly, this might be a great place to send them for research done outside of class.

Danticat has also spoken a great deal on a variety of topics, and many of these are available online. I’ve shared a few that I’ve found below. I hope they are both interesting and helpful to you!
