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.

    Good group and fun interacting with owner of the coffee house. He really mellowed as time went on.

    Disappointed that I missed the meetup - unexpected transportation need from "m'ija". Loved the book.

    Just found out that Dunn Bros. has temporarily closed its Lake St. location due to relocating to Hennepin so we're meeting at Uncommon Grounds instead.

    Don't want to be flaky...it'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)
