Hidden Meanings: Truth and Secret in Haiti's Creole Proverbs is a collection of the colorful proverbs that characterize the country of Haiti and its people. The proverbs appear in the original Creole with accompanying translations. Whenever possible, literal rather than common translations are provided that the reader may hear the language as well as the proverbs. Also included are explanations of the proverbs' meanings. Featuring over 1200 entries, this is, to date, the most varied, complete, and accurate collection of Haitian proverbs, though one can never know all the wisdom of this people, for it grows with each new obstacle and generation born.

The Inaugural Santa Fe Literary Festival was a huge success!

Collected Works was very proud to have been on-site all weekend as the official bookstore of the Santa Fe Festival. Bestselling, prizewinning authors and literary legends like Margaret Atwood, Joy Harjo, Colson Whitehead, Sandra Cisneros, Jon Krakauer, amongst others, spent time in our mini-bookstore in the lobby of the Convention Center and signed hundreds of books, which we now have in stock. So if you missed the festival but are looking for a signed copy of one of their books, please call us or come in to browse.
