Literary fundraiser in Key West benefits Haiti

Bell If you're headed to the Keys this weekend, you can join the literary and visual arts community in Key West at Souls Not Lost, a fundraiser for Partners in Health, the group headed by Dr. Paul Farmer, at 6 p.m. Sunday at The Studios of Key West.

Madison Smartt Bell - author of a biography of Toussaint Louverture and the Haitian revolutionary trilogy of novels that includes All Souls Rising, Master at the Crossroads and The Stone That The Builder Refused - will speak, and a silent auction will feature donated artwork and books signed by the likes of Annie Dillard, Robert Stone, Meg Cabot, Judy Blume, James Gleick, Robert Richardson, Valerie Martin, Margaret Atwood and Tracy Kidder (who has donated a signed copy of Mountains Beyond Mountains, his book about Farmer).

The Studios of Key West are located at 600 White St.; email soulsnotlost@gmail.com for more information.

Well, with about three feet of snow on the ground, you can certainly understand why I am wishing I were going to Key West this weekend. Do you need coverage of this event? I'll write til the cows come home if you send me!
