An Afternoon with Julia Alvarez
Alvarez will give a keynote presentation focusing on her novel In the Time of the Butterflies, which was inspired by the life story of the Mirabal sisters. On November 25, 1960 three of the Mirabal sisters known as “the butterflies” were brutally murdered for their participation in the resistance movement against Rafael Trujillo’s dictatorship in the Dominican Republic.
