At an October 2 dinner in Andrews Hall, the Brown Alumni Association presented its sixteenth set of Alumni Recognition Awards to a fresh crop of the University's most distinguished alumni. This year's recipient of the William Rogers Award - given to an alum who, in the words of the Brown Charter, leads a life of "usefulness and reputation" - is Edwidge Danticat. The author of The Farming of Bones (see "Today I Am a Bird," Books, March/April) and two other works, Danticat is the first novelist to win the award. She is also its youngest recipient.
