Julia Alvarez at the University of West Georgia’s Coliseum

Julia Alvarez, a prize-winning poet, essayist, and novelist will give a public reading at the University of West Georgia’s Coliseum on Wednesday, September 22, at 8 p.m.

Her multi-award-winning novel, In the Time of the Butterflies, has been chosen as a National Endowment for the Arts “Big Read” selection for next year. Ms. Alvarez's novel is designed to inspire, as it celebrates the human spirit, as people struggle, sometimes fatally, with oppression and malevolence.
