To see pictures from my book launch/birthday party on August 25, 2009, please see my book’s website. About 50 people came, including friends, colleagues from Department of Sociology and the Carolina Population Center, and some of my undergraduate students. I autographed about 20 books. The raspberry white chocolate cake from Fresh Market was a big hit! Howard Aldrich, the chair of the Sociology Department, is shown here introducing the book. I also told the audience a bit more about the research for the book and displayed the artwork I collected in Haiti, all the while with Haitian compas music playing in the background.
