The Unterberg Poetry Center of the 92nd Street Y presents Edwidge Danticat and Ann Patchett on September 25, 2019.
“We live in heartbreaking times, which make fictional stories, to my mind, even as I write them, feel small and useless, but when I look back at stories I have written during previously difficult times, I am happy I wrote them. Whether they address directly what is happening or not, it feels like I am bearing witness. I guess this is what I will continue to do, with my pen, and with my feet, and with my time and whatever other ways I can be helpful.”
– Edwidge Danticat, interviewed at The Brooklyn Review.
