Join Julia Alvarez for lunch as she discusses A Wedding in Haiti, a story about three of Alvarez’s most personal relationships—with her parents, with her husband, and with a young Haitian boy known as Piti. A teenager when Julia first met him in 2001, Piti crossed the border into the Dominican Republic to find work. Julia, impressed by his courage and charmed by his smile, has over the years come to think of him as a son, even promising to be at his wedding someday. When Piti calls in 2009, Julia’s promise is tested. Alvarez is the author of In the Time of the Butterflies and How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents.
