"Pick up this book if you've never read anything about Haiti or if you've read everything about Haiti; Maps are Lines we Draw forges a new path."
- Jen Hirt, author of Under Glass: The Girl with a Thousand Christmas Trees
"Carefully researched and humbly told, Coffelt’s memoir is a trip well worth taking."
- Joni Tevis, author of The World Is On Fire: Scrap, Treasure, and Songs of Apocalypse
"With her striking debut, Maps Are Lines We Draw, Allison Coffelt weaves an eloquent collage of history and place, politics and policy, inquiry and knowledge. The lines that mark the boundaries between here and there are removed to reveal a complex Haiti, then redrawn to assemble an even more complex notion of aid."
- Angela Palm, author of Riverine: A Memoir from Anywhere but Here
