External Online Event: Julia Alvarez in Conversation with Samantha Mabry

5:00 PM – 6:00 PM

Description

Afterlife is the first adult novel in almost 15 years by Julia Alvarez, the internationally bestselling author of In the Time of the Butterflies and How the Garci­a Girls Lost Their Accents.

Antonia Vega, the immigrant writer at the center of Afterlife, has had the rug pulled out from under her. She has just retired from the college where she taught English when her beloved husband, Sam, suddenly dies. And then more jolts: her bighearted but unstable sister disappears, and Antonia returns home one evening to find a pregnant, undocumented teenager on her doorstep. Antonia has always sought direction in the literature she loves -- lines from her favorite authors play in her head like a soundtrack -- but now she finds that the world demands more of her than words.

Alvarez will be joined in conversation by Samantha Mabry, author of Tigers, Not Daughters and A Fierce and Subtle Poison.
