About the Event

Drawing on her own upbringing between the Dominican Republic and the United States, Julia Alvarez introduces us to the García sisters, Carla, Yolanda, Sandra, and Sofia, as they come of age in New York City. A generation of readers have found themselves in these captivating stories of daily struggle and changing family dynamics in a “wondrous but not always welcoming” new home. 


 

About Literary Partners

Literacy Partners is an adult literacy program where parents come to transform their lives and create a brighter future for their children through the power of literacy. Alvarez gives voice to the stories of so many of our students, for whom language is key to belonging and accessing opportunity as they make a life for themselves and their family in the hyphen of a dual cultural identity.
