“Beyond Shock: Charting the Landscape of Violence in Post-quake Haiti intends to shake your perceptions. Author Anne-christine d’Adesky, an award-winning journalist, writer, and filmmaker, is our guest today on Writers’ Cafe. As incidents of gender-based violence increased after the 2010 earthquake, responses and support rose up to support survivors. Ms. d’Adesky gathered interviews and statistics from more than sixty organizations in writing her report. The result is a testament to the will and collaborative spirit that is fostering change in Haiti’s response to sexual violence. Ms. d’Adesky invites you to carnival in this episode of Writers’ Cafe, hosted by Santa Barbara Poet Laureate Chryss Yost.”
Writers’ Cafe airs on Tuesdays mornings in the Fall, from 9:30-10:00 am.
