Notice from Word Up Community Bookshop:
Due to the coronavirus pandemic that has led to canceled events around the world, we too, with a heavy heart, must cancel our upcoming Julia Alvarez event at the United Palace. Ticket buyers will receive a full refund, including the tickets bundled with books. To continue to support Word Up Community Bookshop, please preorder the book HERE—with code WULOVESJA to receive 15% off your purchase of Julia's new book Afterlife (coupon code expires April 30). The book's publication date is April 7th, so if you order now, you will receive your copy in the mail around that time. Thank you for having supported us, and thank you for your patience and understanding during these unusual circumstances. Stay safe!
