Manuel Mathieu in conversation with Edwidge Danticat in partnership with The Power Plant
October 24 at 1pm
This event is no longer available for viewing.
The Power Plant and the 41st edition of the Toronto International Festival of Authors co-present this conversation between Haitian-born, Montreal-based artist Manuel Mathieu and award-winning Haitian-American author Edwidge Danticat. Mathieu’s painterly work reflects on the fraught history of Haiti, on diasporic identity, and on the writings of Frantz Fanon. Danticat’s novels and non-fiction works explore autobiographical threads relating to her experience of Haiti’s dual dictatorships, which forced her family to migrate to the United States. The two will engage in conversation; the programme will conclude with questions and answers from the audience.
