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.

This event will take place on Zoom. Your Zoom link will be emailed to you 24-hours prior to the event.
