In This Great Future, You Can't Forget Your Past
(L. to R.) Marlon James, Geoffrey Philp, and Edwidge Danticat
The Miami Book Fair International is not only a great event to publicize and sell books, it's also a place to meet old friends and to talk shop before rushing off to the next reading.
After my reading of Marcus and the Amazons, I met up with Edwidge Danticat, Evelina Galang, and Marlon James. Edwidge had just returned from New York, Marlon was leaving for Mexico, and Evelina was planning a reading for Ishion Hutchinson at the University of Miami.

Maybe one of these days we'll get a chance to sit and have an extended conversation in Evelina's backyard.
Are you up for it, Evelina?
Have a great Thanksgiving, my friends.
