ECU staff members co-author book on Haiti
East Carolina University staff member Elaine Hughes in the Department of Kinesiology and Christina Ruotolo of Eastern AHEC at ECU, with additional co-authors, developed “The Day the Earth Moved Haiti: From Havoc to Healing,” which examines the effects of the Jan. 12, 2010 earthquake on the Haitian people.
The authors collaborated with individuals who had traveled to Haiti before, during and after the earthquake to present photographs, stories and poetry about the country and its people.
Proceeds from the book support three non-profit organizations that help Haiti: Compassion Weavers, Hope for Haiti Foundation and the Ryan Epps Children’s Home.
