Intended to celebrate Haiti’s rich heritage and culture, the literary compilation and "declaration of solidarity with the survivors” is set to be launched October 26.

New Anthology to Assist Haiti Earthquake Victims Published

Devastated when the earthquake struck my native land last year, I am honored to relate the news about a newly published book, A Lime Jewel: An Anthology of Poetry and Short Stories in Aid of Haiti. The book will be launched on October 26th. All of the proceeds from sales of the book will be donated to the Lambi Fund of Haiti.

The editor, Yetunde Ruban from London, England, was moved with a deep compassion for the earthquake victims. Yetunde and her Meetup group came up with the idea of publishing the anthology. “A Lime Jewel,” says Ms. Ruban, “is a lasting memorial to those who perished in the 12 January earthquake and a declaration of solidarity with the survivors.”

What makes this anthology so unique is that it is intended to celebrate Haiti’s rich heritage and culture. The authors who contributed to this one of a kind book range from between 10 and 75 years of age and come from all walks of life.

Many international individuals contributed to completion of A Lime Jewel. Among them are: Nadifa Mohammed, NiiAyiwei Parkes, Simon Murray, Ann-Margaret Lim, Christine-Jean Blain, Geoffrey Philp, and many others.

The official launch date is October 26 2010 at Ty Crepe, 99 Brixton Hill, London SW2 1AA at 7.00 p.m.
