Frankétienne, author of Ready to Burst, translated from the French by Kaiama L. Glover, will be speaking at the Brooklyn Book Festival this fall!

Creativity and Chaos: Artistic High-Wire Acts
St. Francis College Auditorium
1:00pm – 2:00pm

How do artists tap into their most creative selves, and learn to balance the impulses—whether it’s for performance and visual art, literature, or computer programming—to make something new? A conversation with Philippe Petit (Creativity: The Perfect Crime), Haitian author and painter Franketienne (Ready to Burst), and Vikram Chandra (Geek Sublime: The Beauty of Code, the Code of Beauty). Moderated by Elissa Schappell. Book signing to follow panel discussion.

“[Frankétienne’s] work can speak to the most intellectual person in the society as well as the most humble. It’s a very generous kind of genius he has, one I can’t imagine Haitian literature ever existing without.
