LIVE via Crowdcast


Join us online as our very own Mitchell Kaplan sits down with Julia Alvarez, the internationally bestselling author of In The Time of the Butterflies and How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents to discuss her first adult novel in fifteen years, Afterlife (Algonquin Books, $25.95).

We welcome you to engage and ask questions as you join us live for an inspiring conversation online!

Julia Alvarez también contestará preguntas del público en español.

Afterlife is “a gorgeously intimate portrait of an immigrant writer and recent widow carving out hope in the face of personal and political grief.” (O, The Oprah Magazine) Set in this political moment of tribalism and distrust, it asks: What do we owe those in crisis in our families, including — maybe especially — members of our human family? How do we live in a broken world without losing faith in one another or ourselves? And how do we stay true to those glorious souls we have lost?
