Our hearts go out to the people of Haiti at this time. The effects of this crisis reverberate across the world and have created a much-needed interest in Haiti.

Writers Edwidge Danticat and Simon Winchester are both doing their part to get the word out about Haiti.

Danticat has created a book list for those interested in the history of Haiti.

Author and founder of the Haiti chapter of PEN, Georges Anglade and his wife were lost in the quake.

Author Madison Smartt Bell contributed a literary sampler of works about Haiti for The New York Times.

Opportunities abound to send support to Haiti. Please email us if you have news of how the SF Bay Area book and publishing community is helping and we will post it on The Monthly Muse.
