Marc-Yves Regis To Speak At ECSU

Marc Yves Regis, prominent Haitian photojournalist, author,  poet,  and former Courant photographer, will speak at Eastern Connecticut State University on Sept. 10 from 3-4 p.m. in the Paul E. Johnson Sr. Community Conference Room of Eastern’s J. Eugene Smith Library.

Regis’s presentation is part of Eastern’s popular University Hour Series.

“Through his photographs and poetry, Marc-Yves Regis will bring the island nation of Haiti, our guest’s native land, to Eastern,” said Carol Reichardt, associate librarian and organizer of the event. “After his presentation, Regis will also participate in a book signing of his latest book. Also, an installation of some of his poster-sized photographs will be available to view on the second floor in the library.”

Regis is the author of five books: “Haiti Through My Eyes,” a selection of poetry about Haiti; “Deadly Road to Democracy,” a first-person account of Haiti’s violent struggle for democracy; “Two Good Feet,” a photographic documentary of physically-challenged Haitian children; “Haiti After the Shock,” a selection of poems and stories about the earthquake in Haiti; and his latest book, “Headstrong Children, Carrying Haiti’s Economic Burden’s,” published by West Hartford-based Downhome Publishing.
