Eight Days: A Story of Haiti

By: Edwidge Danticat
Illustrated by: Alix Delinois

Renowned Haitian author, Edwidge Danticat's newest novel Eight Days: A Story of Haiti is out now. Her newest book tells the story of an eight year old boy named
Junior stuck in the rumble after Haiti's January 2010 earthquake. Upon being rescued, he tells his rescuers what he did for each of those eight days.

This is a beautiful story of healing, survival and hope in Haiti. As Ms. Danticat tells the story through a child's eyes, she shows the true strength and spirit of Haiti.

Edwidge Danticat has generously agreed to donate a portion of all book sales to the Lambi Fund of Haiti to support rebuilding after the earthquake. Get your copy now!
