“The Big Truck That Went By” by Jonathan M. Katz. Recommended by David Weigel, political reporter. “Important” books rarely end up as grounded and thrilling as “The Big Truck That Went By.” Jonathan Katz, the Associated Press’ man in Haiti for years, was finishing up his stint there when he woke up to the Jan. 10, 2010, earthquake. Katz demystifies a “third world” tragedy with ease, taking us through the rigors of filing stories in Port-au-Prince, the doddering of President Rene Preval, the logistics of refugee camps, and the compound tragedy of a cholera epidemic brought to the country by those who were supposed to save it. Katz is a superb, perceptive writer, something that makes even encounters with well-covered celebrities (Bill Clinton, Sean Penn) more informative than the average longread profile. He weaves in a love story, and he breaks real news, all on the way to capturing a horrific event you’ll no longer be free to forget.

The luncheon and food festival that were held during the event reflected the day’s diversity theme as well. And although many of the dishes that were served are common around these parts–think chimichurri chicken and egg rolls–there was also something on the menu called mfumbwa, which is the Congo’s version of wild spinach. McKinney, meantime, summed up the day’s activities with words to ponder. “We could learn a lot from crayons,” she said. “Some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names and all are different colors. But they all fit nicely into the same box.”.
