Virtual Event: Isabel Allende

Tuesday, January 25, 7:00 p.m. CST
Promotional Partnership with the Latino Cultural Center
In conversation with Dave Eggers
 
This sweeping novel from the New York Times bestselling author of A Long Petal of the Sea tells the epic story of Violeta Del Valle, a woman whose life spans 100 years and bears witness to the greatest upheavals of the 20th century.
 
Violeta comes into the world on a stormy day in 1920, the first girl in a family with five boisterous sons. Her life is shaped by some of the most important events of history: the fight for women’s rights, the rise and fall of tyrants, and, ultimately, not one but two pandemics.
 
Telling her story in the form of a letter to someone she loves above all others, recounting times of devastating heartbreak and passionate affairs, poverty and wealth, terrible loss and immense joy, Isabel Allende once more brings us an epic that is both fiercely inspiring and deeply emotional.
 
Isabel Allende—novelist, feminist, and philanthropist—is one of the most widely read authors in the world, having sold more than 75 million books that have been translated into 42 languages. Chilean born in Peru, Isabel won worldwide acclaim in 1982 with the publication of her first novel, The House of the Spirits, which began as a letter to her dying grandfather. Since then, she has authored more than 25 bestselling and critically acclaimed books, including Daughter of FortuneA Long Petal of the Sea, and her most recent memoir, The Soul of a Woman. In addition to her work as a writer, Allende devotes much of her time to human rights causes.
