Washington, DC

The IDB Cultural Center

Inter-American Lecture Series

presents Patti M. Marxsen’s short stories

Tales from

the Heart of Haiti

Educa Books, 2010

Books will be made available for sale and signing at the event by Portico Bookstore

Patti Marxsen will read from her collection of short stories, Tales from the Heart of Haiti, published earlier this year by Educa Vision, the premier Haitian-American publishing firm in the U.S.

Marxsen, who came to know Haiti in the 1990s through her association with Haiti’s Hospital Albert Schweitzer, speaks of the impetus for her stories as “my fascination with Haiti as a nation, a culture, and a land of contrasts dependent on foreign aid.  I began with the unfulfilled promise of Haitian Independence from France, in 1804, of Haiti as the first black republic prepared to control its own destiny in the wake of a stunningly successful slave revolution.”

In her stories, Marxsen presents a complex perspective of the Haitian people by writing of their interactions with those who come from somewhere else and try to help.  As we have seen in the months since the Earthquake of January 12, 2010, Haiti overflows with expatriates and missionaries.  But how much do foreign “helpers” see and know?  “Only when we allow ourselves to enter into that mysterious world of Haitian feeling, Haitian spirituality, Haitian loss, and Haitian violence do we begin to understand the boundaries and the connections,” Marxsen says.  “I have written these stories with the hope of understanding that particular ‘otherness’ that is sadly, beautifully, wildly, and proudly Haitian.”

In addition to her reading, Marxsen will address the current situation in Haiti by delineating the most urgent needs and by sharing her views on how international organizations can best help to meet those needs by deepening their understanding of Haitian history and culture.  In particular, she will raise questions about how NGOs and the Interim Commission for the Recovery of Haiti, co-chaired by former President Bill Clinton and Haitian Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive, have helped or hindered progress.  “I always go back to an invaluable piece of advice from the co-founder of Hospital Albert Schweitzer, Gwen Mellon. ‘Never forget, you are a guest in this country.’” With this advice in mind, Marxsen adds, “Guests behave differently than saviors.”

Patti Marxsen is a former French teacher and has served as a communications manager in several non-profit organizations in New England, including a Boston-base peace and justice institute. Her Haiti-related writings have been published in the Caribbean Writer, The French Review, the Journal of Haitian Studies, New Century Voices, and the Women’s Review of Books. In addition to Tales from the Heart of Haiti, she is the author of Island Journeys: Exploring the Legacy of France (2008), which includes an essay on Haiti. She is also a board member of the Haitian Studies Association and has played an active role in organizing the annual conference at Brown University, November 11-14, with the theme of “Haiti, History, and Healing: Facing the Challenges of Reconstruction.”  Marxsen lives in Switzerland with her husband, a retired surgeon.  www.pattimarxsen.net

Iglesias Conference Center, 2nd floor, 1330 New York Avenue NW, Washington, DC, and one block from Metro Center, 13th Street exit.  Photo ID required.  Attire is business casual.  Seating is unreserved general admission, 380 seats.  202.623.3558   www.iadb.org/cultural
