Congratulations, Julia Alvarez!
Over the course of twenty years, Julia has published seven widely-acclaimed books with Algonquin—including the national bestsellers How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents and In the Time of the Butterflies. She is a writer-in-residence at Middlebury College in Vermont and is involved with her husband in Alta Gracia, an organic farm-literacy arts center in her homeland of the Dominican Republic. Julia is a true literary dynamo—her work has spanned fiction, nonfiction, and poetry; been published in eighteen countries; and been adapted for film and theater. Her latest work, A Wedding in Haiti, will be published by Algonquin in spring 2012.
