Culture.CLE Book Club: February Edition

January 27, 2019



In February we will be reading Julia Alvarez's In the Time of the Butterflies (1994). The book is a work of historical fiction based on the lives of the four Mirabal sisters. The sisters participated in underground efforts to topple Rafael Leonidas Trujillo's three-decade-long dictatorial regime in the Dominican Republic. Three of the sisters—Patria, Minerva, and María Teresa—were murdered on Trujillo's orders on November 25, 1960. Their story haunted Alvarez, whose own family had fled the Dominican Republic just three months earlier in fear that her father's participation in the resistance would make him a target of Trujillo. Join us for an evening discussing the Mirabal sisters on February 13 at 6:30P. RSVP now https://www.facebook.com/events/372238413360828/
