Tuesday Readers discuss "Afterlife" by Julia Alvarez
Tuesday, October 19, 2021
Join us for a conversation about Julia Alvarez's "Afterlife".
The novel follows Antonia Vega, a woman living in Vermont. Her family is originally from the Dominican Republic, but she has lived in the United States for almost her entire life. She is a retired literature professor. Her husband, Sam, died nine months ago due to an aortic aneurysm. Her elderly parents died within the last couple years. She has three sisters—Izzy, Mona, and Tilly—but her relationship with them is slightly distant, as there is often some dysfunction between them.
