This week's "Let's Talk" segment on The Weekly Voice featured the book The Big Truck That Went By: How the World Came to Save Haiti and Left Behind a Disaster. That's the daunting title of a very important book by author Jonathan Katz. As the name suggests, the book critiques the international response to the Haitian earthquake of 2010. When the quake hit, Katz was the only full-time correspondent there, which suggests he was fully involved in the country before international attention focused there following the beginnings of humanitarian efforts. Katz will be talking about his book at an event at the Miami Book Fair International this sunday november 24th at 3:30 p.m.
The Weekly Voice airs Fridays at 10am. It is hosted by Hyan Freitas.
