Writers LIVE: Katia D. Ulysse: Mouths Don't Speak

Enoch Pratt Free Library, Waverly Branch

It’s 2010 when a massive earthquake strikes Haiti, taking over a quarter-million lives and leaving millions of others homeless.

Three thousand miles away, Jacqueline Florestant mourns the presumed death of her parents in the disaster, while her husband, a former U.S. Marine and combat veteran, cares for their three-year-old daughter and fights his own battles with acute PTSD.

Horrified and guilt-ridden, Jacqueline returns to Haiti in search of some kind of closure. Unfortunately, the Haiti she left as a child twenty-five years earlier has disappeared. Her quest is beset by deception, desperation, and more death, while Jacqueline holds tightly to her daughter -- the one who must not die.

Katia D. Ulysse is a fiction writer, born in Haiti. Her short stories, essays, and Pushcart Prize-nominated poetry appear in numerous literary journals. She is the author of Drifting, a collection of short stories. Katie Ulysse taught in Baltimore public schools for thirteen years and is now the Kratz Center's Writer-in-Residence at Goucher College.
