On the heels of Julia Alvarez’s electrifying interview with Edwidge Danticat for the Algonquin Book Club, and just in time for National Poetry Month, we’re excited to announce the paperback publication of Julia Alvarez’s collection of poetry The Woman I Kept To Myself.
“Brave and vivid…Seventy-five poems express wonder, anger, grief and joy in clear, accessible narratives.” —The Miami Herald
“The poems are, like precious moments in life, nuggets to be savored and reflected upon.” —Dallas Morning News
“Charming and intense at the same time, Alvarez writes candidly of epic concerns and everyday realities in this unfailingly lucid collection of autobiographical poems.” —Booklist
We’re giving away a set of Julia Alvarez paperbacks, The Woman I Kept to Myself, In the Time of the Butterflies, How the Garcia Girls Lost their Accents, and Saving the World. To enter to win, leave a comment below, or on our Facebook page.
