On Thursday, April 11th at 7PM, beloved international best-selling author Julia Alvarez will appear in the Open Book/ Open Mind series. She will be in conversation with NYU professor and journalist Yvonne Latty.

The event is a partnership between the Montclair Public Library and Central Presbyterian Church, where the event will occur at 46 Park Street, Montclair. The authors will discuss their common Dominican heritage and culture as well as writing and storytelling. It has been 25 years since In the Time of the Butterflies was first published but women’s empowerment and activism are still as topical today.

Tickets are $16 and include a 25th-anniversary paperback copy of In the Time of the Butterflies which Julia will sign at the end of the event.
