Archive: An n’ Pale | Café Conversations ak Author Évelyne Trouillot

On Tuesday, November 15th, Haiti Cultural Exchange in collaboration with Words Without Borders hosted the monthly An n’ Pale | Café Conversations series with author Évelyne Trouillot at the NYU bookstore. Évelyne read some of her works and engaged in a discussion of her work with NYU Professor J. Michael Dash.

Évelyne Trouillot lives in Port-au-Prince, Haiti and teaches in the French department at the State University. She published her first book of short stories in 1996. In 2004 Trouillot received the Prix de la romancière francophone du Club Soroptimist de Grenoble for her first novel Rosalie l’infâme. In 2005 her first piece for the theater, Le bleu de l’île, received the Beaumarchais award from ETC Caraïbe. Trouillot has also published poetry in French and in Creole. Her latest novel, La mémoire aux abois, published in France by Éditions Hoëbeke in May 2010, presents a compelling view of the dictatorship in Haiti and received the prestigious award Le prix Carbet de la Caraibe et du Tout-Monde in December 2010.
