Book Launch Event and Signing with Steven Werlin Announcd For New Book TO FOOL THE RAIN
Steven Werlin first began traveling to Haiti in 1996 to learn from literacy programs abroad as a professor at Shimer College in Chicago. In 2005, he settled in Kaglo, a small village in the mountains above Port-au-Prince. Since 2010, he has been working for Chemen Lavi Miyò, or CLM, Fonkoze's program for the extreme poor. He currently acts as CLM's communications and learning officer.
He recently authored To Fool the Rain: Haiti's Poor and their Pathway to a Better Life [January 24, 2017, Ti Koze Press] in which he discusses the women and families who have been helped by this program. His goal was to specifically outline how global poverty can end if we choose to end it.
Werlin is currently on a national book tour and will be in Washington, DC on April 19th for a book signing and event at the Darlington House from 6:30pm - 8:30pm.
