The Writer's Studio Craft Talk with Julia Alvarez: When Less is More-A Love Affair with the Short, Lyrical Novel

Join Julia Alvarez on Thursday, November 7, as she explores how much time and care it takes to write a beautiful, short novel. Author of the Big Read selection "In the Time of the Butterflies" and the forthcoming "Afterlife," Alvarez will track her inspiration as a reader of brief, powerful novels and the aesthetic that less is sometimes more. The first hour will consist of the lecture and an appropriately compact writing exercise, followed by a Q&A and book signing.

Lighthouse Writers Workshop makes me hopeful about the future of the arts in America.
