WHITE SKY, the first poetry collection to be published by Boadiba, a
Haitian-born poet and translator who currently lives in the San
Francisco Bay Area.
Boadibaâs poetry, well-known to American poets and poetry lovers
since her arrival in the United States in the 1980s, can now be easily
shared through this ninety page collection of twenty-five years of work.
Acclaimed for her distinctive poetry readings based in Haitian cultural
and musical traditions, her searingly honest poems reflect her deep
knowledge of her Haitian heritage, cutting edge contemporary art, and
experiences gained through many travels.
In her "Introduction" Boadiba writes, "I sing those who make gardens of
their mountain towns, who make theater among the trees, those who
send fire words flying in the face of censorship, those who are always
willing to offer knowledge and competency for the good of Haiti,
without giving in to the waste and corruption that so far has
accompanied the office of power."
About: Ishmael Reed Publishing Company is proud to introduce UNDER BURNING WHITE SKY, the first poetry collection to be published by Boadiba, a Haitian-born poet and translator who currently lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.
