Edwidge Danticat has captivated audiences ever since her debut novel, Breath, Eyes, Memory, in 1994. She rose to national prominence after Oprah Winfrey selected the book to be apart of the prestigious Oprah Book club in 1998. Danticat continued to enthrall her readers with follow up novels, "Krik, Krak" and "The Farming of Bones."
Edwidge Danticat has been selected as the One Book, One Philadelphia author for it's 10th anniversary and in celebration of her selection and rare Philadelphia appearance, Art Sanctuary will host an afternoon of conversation, performance and sharing with the beloved author.
Danticat's latest book, a collection of essays entitled " Create Dangerously: An immigrant artist at work" is the One Book selection. In a discussion moderated by well-known cultural activist and arts advocate April Silver, we will look at the role of the immigrant artists in the arts and cultural community and in their own respective communities.
