M.J. Fievre: teacher, creative writing grad student, contributor to “Haiti Noir.”
Catch her: Sunday, noon. Pavilion A.
Her work, past and future: When I was in Haiti, I wrote children’s mystery books in French. “Le Fantôme de Lisbeth” is the story of a young struggling ballerina. One night while struggling with her work she meets the ghost of a famous Haitian ballerina, who helps her. [Now,] unless I’m writing fiction, I write whatever is on my mind. My next project is my memoir that tells the story of what growing up in Haiti is really like.
