Talk & Book Signing
Meet the Author:
Carmelle St. Gérard-Lopez
Wednesday, December 11, 2013
Haitian writer Carmelle St. Gérard-Lopez presents Sans fard,
ni rimmel and its sequel, Dialogue à la première personne.
In Sans fard, ni rimmel, two sisters, marked by the assassination
of their parents, grow up and share their childhood in perfect
connivance. Their destiny is determined by outside decisions
imposed upon them, which drives the plot into a series
of surprising changes.
Following the talk, Stephanie Fribourg, Artistic Director
of the international theater company L’Oiseau Bleu, will read
excerpts from the books.
Talk and reading will be followed by a book signing.
