January 26: HCX | Collaboration: The Haiti Series

The Haiti Series

One Moore Book is a publisher and distributor of culturally sensitive children’s literature. Please join us as we celebrate the launch of The Haiti Series–a collection of six stories that feature the vibrant culture and people of The Republic of Haiti.

The launch event will be an art exhibition of the work of artist Edouard Duval Carrié. The exhibited panels are also featured in Edwidge Danticat’s second children’s book, The Last Mapou, which will be published in this series.

The evening will host live music by Haitian musician Obed Jean-Louis who combines Haitian folk twobadou and roots sounds to create original soulful music that speaks to the world.

Each ticket sold will pay for the purchase and shipping of one book to a child in Haiti through a partnership with the LitWorld Organization. A portion of the proceeds will also benefit Haiti Cultural Exchange, a Brooklyn-based nonprofit organization established to develop, present and promote the cultural expressions of the Haitian people.

Come out and enjoy a night of Haitian music, literature and art.
