2018: Literary Immigration: A Conversation with Edwidge Danticat

This episode is an edited recording of novelist Edwidge Danticat at the Sun Valley Writers’ Conference. In one way or another, from the moment she left Haiti to settle in Brooklyn, New York, at age 12, Edwidge Danticat has been writing stories (prize-winning novels, memoirs, and essays) about the experience and effects of immigration. In conversation with Jeffrey Brown of the PBS NewsHour, she talks about the ways that first seismic journey in her life has shaped all the journeys she has lived and written since.
