Talk & Walk: 'In the Time of the Butterflies' by Julia Alvarez

For our January meetup we head down to the Dominican Republic to hear the tale of the four butterflies - sisters who opposed the dictatorship of General Rafael Leonidas Trujillo. After our discussion we'll take our traditional walk (perhaps snowshoe?) to savor Minnesota winter.

    Don't want to be's a three day weekend, so depends on whether I'm in town or not. Consider "Before We Were Free" if you want a book-same content-that's suitable for younger readers (high elementary-jr high)
