A group  from London decided to publish an anthology  titled “WORD FOR HAITI”  All of the proceeds from the book will be donated to the Lambi Fund of Haiti.  The editor , Yetunde Ruban made an appeal to poets, writers and artists to submit their work for inclusion  in this publication.  The  expected date of publication is July 17th, 2010.  The editor plans  to launch the book in London on  that day.

Feel free to join the group on facebook: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=10150092777080046

I am happy to announce that one of my poems and a short story will be published in the anthology.  Please refer to http://www.lambifund.org/ for more information  about the organization that all the proceeds will go to.  I will keep everyone updated on the exact date the book will be released.   I am so looking forward to the publication of this book.   I am very pleased  that my students’ works will be included in the book too.   Since I am Haitian American, after the earthquake several of my students wrote poems and short stories .  Their actions moved me deeply,  the editor allowed my students to submit their work along with mine.   There will be a press conference with the Denver media in July once the book is released.  My students will do a reading to help promote the book.  Stay tuned for more details later this summer.
