Journalist Amy Wilentz has written about Haiti for 25 years -- but when she visited just weeks after the 2010 earthquake, she hardly recognized the country. Yet amid the devastation and signs of corruption, she says she also felt Haiti's determined resilience and vibrant culture shine through. Her latest book, "Farewell, Fred Voodoo," is a love letter to Haiti and its people, who she says are still undiminished by Haiti's many challenges.
