Author Julia Alvarez on borders and bridges

Julia Alvarez, whose novels include How The García Girls Lost Their Accents and In the Time of the Butterflies, is writer in residence at Middlebury College. Her work has earned her numerous awards, including this year’s National Medal of the Arts. We speak about growing up in the Domenican Republic and the U.S., her work supporting migrant workers in Vermont, her thoughts on crossing borders, and her New Year’s resolutions to “tell stories to help come together as a human family.”
