Dockside Bookshop Hosts Youme Book Signing

July 14, 2008 – Dockside Bookshop will present a book signing by Youme of his book,"SeLavi, That Is Life – A Haitian Story of Hope," from 2-3 p.m., on Saturday, July 19.
"SeLavi, That Is Life – A Haitian Story of Hope" by Youme, West Indian Children's Book
This is the true story of "Selavi" ("that is life"), a small boy who finds himself homeless on the streets of Haiti. He finds other street children, who share their food and a place to sleep. Together they proclaim a message of hope through murals and radio programs. Now in paperback, this beautifully illustrated story is supplemented with photographs of Haitian children working and playing together, plus an essay by Edwidge Danticat. It has been included in the 2005 ALA Notable Children's Book List and the Texas Bluebonnet Award Master List.
