Three months after the January 12th earthquake, you've still got at least 1.5 mm people "living" in Port au Prince, the capital city, in crowded camps of tents and makeshift shacks. Hurricane season in Haiti is June-November, and NOAA, the US weather agency, says there could be multiple Caribbean hurricanes this year alone.

On Saturday April 10, Kathy Engel and the group Poets for Ayiti read their work at Canio's Books, Sag Harbor.  Their chapbook Poems for Haiti: For the Crowns of Your Heads is available with proceeds going to help restore the 
Bibliotheque du Soleil in Port-Au-Prince.
