Burlington County Library System is a proud recipient of the NEA Big Read grant for the second year in a row! Look for programming at your local branch featuring this year's selection In the Time of the Butterflies.
Enjoy a lively group discussion based on Julia Alverez's novel focused on four sisters in the Dominican Republic. The story spans decades as each sister shares her own story, from hair ribbons and secret crushes to gunrunning and leading the opposition to General Rafael Leonidas Trujillo's dictatorship. Alvarez shares the important tale of Las Mariposas, "The Butterflies," in this novel of courage and love, and the human cost of political oppression.
To obtain a free copy of the book please visit the library and register for one of our NEA Big Read events.
