HHW2019: “Unmet Potential” book signing w/ Gessie Belizaire

May 13, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Gessie Belizaire – Unmet Potential book signing

Join us at PAP for Haitian Heritage Week 2019 (HHW2019) from May 12-18, during which we will celebrate the diversity, depth and beauty of all things Haitian.

On Monday, May 13, we will have Haitian American author, Gessie Belizaire, discuss and sign copies of her book, “Unmet Potential; The Long Term Impact of French Colonial Administration on Haiti and Guinea.”

In her book Belizaire walks the reader through a historical perspective, the story and the struggle for survival of two developing nations, Haiti and Guinea. Through a comparative analysis, we learn the truths of both countries like it has never been told. Discover the kind of truth that brings to life not only the internal experience of a moment, but the desires of the heart for real sustainable change.

The evening will include music, happy hour specials, a meet and greet book signing with Miss Belizaire, followed by a brief discussion on the book itself.

As always, there is NO cover charge, so come on through for the food, culture, and a celebration of Haiti!
