FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Markham, ON (October 30, 2014) —The New York Times Book Review has published its annual list of the 10 Best Illustrated Children’s Books of 2014. This year’s list includes Canadian artist Rogé who is being honoured for his evocative illustrations in Haiti My Country (Fifth House Publishers, May 2014). For several months Rogé prepared a series of portraits of Haitian children which accompany poems written by students of Camp Perrin in this beautiful collection of art and poetry. Haiti My Country reflects the indomitable spirit of the people of Haiti. It is our hope that this book will help to remind people of both the issues still facing Haiti and the strength and determination of the Haitian people.
