Description


WATCH A VIDEO OF THIS EVENT

We celebrate the 25th anniversary of Julia Alvarez’s In The Time of the Butterflies, a haunting fictional account of three sisters involved with a resistance movement against an oppressive government that fatally silenced them, and a story that continues to resonate today. Alvarez speaks with National Book Award winner Elizabeth Acevedo (The Poet X). Alvarez and Acevedo, two leading Latinx voices in the American literary canon, will join in an intergenerational conversation on craft, legacy, and literature.
 
Presented in collaboration with PEN America and the Strand Book Store.
