Nobel poet, Haitian writer to speak at Y
By Jared McCallister, New York Daily News Writer

Nobel Prize-winning St. Lucian poet Derek Walcott and Haitian author Edwidge Danticat will be a part of the 92nd Street Y Unterberg Poetry Center's 2007 season and will make appearances in the series this month.

Walcott, the author of more than 20 collections of poetry and dozens of plays, will read from his rich body of poems on Sept. 17 at 8p.m.

On Sept. 20 at 8 p.m., Danticat, author of "The Dew Breaker" and "Krik? Krak!," will read from her touching memoir "Brother, I'm Dying," a tale of immigration from Haiti to the U.S.

Also reading that evening will be South African novelist, poet and playwright Zakes Mda, whose works include the play "We Shall Sing for the Fatherland" and the novels "The Whale Caller" and "Cion."

The readings will be held at the 92nd Street Y on Lexington Ave. Tickets are $18 and a limited number of $10 tickets are available for people under 35 years of age. For tickets and information, call (212) 415-5500 or visit 92Y.org/poetry.
