The Big Read: In the Time of the Butterflies

Decatur Library Auditorium

February 21, 2018, 7:15p.m.

The Big Read: Locked Up: Love Letters From Behind Bars Letters from prison are censored but many found ways to provide the truth to love ones and continue their efforts in revolutions by using codes. At this event we will read some of those letters and discuss the power those words had beyond the confinements of prison as well as the hope they inspired. This event is a part of 7 Stages National Endowment for the Arts Big Read program. This year’s Big Read book is Julia Alvarez’ In the Time of Butterflies.
