Livres en Folie, the biggest book fair in Haiti

Livres en Folies, Annual Cultural Event

Livres en Folie is definitely an annual madness in Haiti. This year the madness seems to be even greater.

Livres en Folie is an idea that came to life in 1995, based on the initiative of UNIBANK and Le Nouvelliste newspaper. We can in all confidence say that this annual Book Fair event in Haiti is one of the biggest cultural events in the country.

The event has moved from two previous location to finally land at the Parc Historique de la Canne à Sucre this year. It started as a small event at the beginning and at that time La Promenade in Petion-Ville was more that adequate to handle it. As "Livres en Folie" grew in reputation, volume, so was its popularity. With the passing of time, it was obvious that the original location was inadequate. The next location of Livres en Folie became Cercle Bellevue in Bourdon. Due to yet increase popularity, the organizers last year decided to bring it to Parc Historique de la Canne à Sucre at Tabarre.

They are addressing Haiti's slave history and the subsequent slave revolt.

Another roving group, the Chaloska, move through the streets in blood-red and black costumes, their faces decorated with over-sized lurid, red lips and monster fangs. They symbolize the 1915 bloody assault carried out on jailed political dissidents by the local police chief.

Why Haiti needs Kanaval or Carnival after the Haiti Earthquake

Kanaval (Carnival) in Haiti. Due to Haiti Earthquake, the Haitian Kanaval was cancelled this year.

I know this is unpopular, however, I believe that Haiti Kanaval or Carnival should not have been cancelled this year because of Haiti Earthquake.

What is the argument for a Haitian Kanaval (Carnival), specially after over 200,000 people passed away, many more Haitians injured, more than 1,000,000 having no place to stay. Also we can not even think about those who have lost everything: family members, property and more.
