Julia Alvarez Presents Afterlife with Barbara Jenkins

April 29, 2020 via Crowdcast

Julia Alvarez discussed writing Afterlife, her first adult novel in almost fifteen years, with author Barbara Jenkins. Set in this political moment of tribalism and distrust, Afterlife asks: What do we owe those in crisis in our families? How do we live in a broken world without losing faith in one another or ourselves? And how do we stay true to those glorious souls we have lost?

This event was presented in partnership with the Brooklyn Caribbean Literary Festival.
