Writers at Rutgers presents novelist Julia Alvarez
March 3, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
In her recent memoir A Wedding in Haiti, acclaimed Dominican novelist and poet Julia Alvarez travels beyond borders and between families to reflect on the joys and burdens of love―for her parents, for her husband, and for a young Haitian boy known as Piti. In this intimate true account of a promise kept, Alvarez takes us on a journey into experiences that challenge our way of thinking about history and how it can be reimagined when people from two countries―traditional enemies and strangers―become friends.
Julia Alvarez is an award winning Dominican-American poet, novelist, and essayist whose work includes Homecoming (1984), How the García Girls Lost Their Accents (1991), In the Time of the Butterflies (1994), Yo! (1997), Something to Declare (1998), Woman I Kept to Myself (2004), and Saving the World (2006).
Presented in partnership with the Department of English and the Writers at Rutgers Series.
