An Evening With Isabel Allende
Sunday, January 26, 2020 @ 6:30 pm
1300 Biscayne Blvd., Miami, FL 33132 United States
Miami Book Fair is proud to partner with Books & Books and the Adrienne Arsht Center to present Isabel Allende’s A Long Petal of the Sea.
A Long Petal of the Sea (Ballantine Hardcover; on sale Jan. 21) follows the lives of a young couple, Roser and Victor, forced to marry for survival and fleeing the Spanish Civil War, first by foot over mountains into France and finally by boat to Chile. Their unconventional love story, with its highs and lows, prevails in the toughest of circumstances as they search for identity, purpose and home. While Allende’s story starts in 1938 and ends in 1994, the parallels to what is happening today in our country, and around the world, are remarkable.
Isabel Allende’s first novel, The House of the Spirits, is universally lauded as magical realism at its best. The book quickly established her as one of the most esteemed storytellers of our time and began a literary legacy that would make her the highest-selling Spanish-language author in the world, with over 75 million copies of her books in print. She received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from Barack Obama and the PEN Center Lifetime Achievement Award.
Every $42 ticket includes admission to the event and a copy of A Long Petal of the Sea (available in English and Spanish).
