Tuesday, September 23                                                                      7:00 p.m.
Agosin has won multiple awards for her writing and has added a unique personal perspective to her novel, “I Lived on Butterfly Hill” about a young girl living in Chile, who is sent to live in the U.S. for safety when a dictator seizes power. Marjorie Agosín was raised in Chile by Jewish parents. Her family moved to the United States to escape the horrors of the Pinochet takeover of their country. Coming from a South American country and being Jewish, Agosín’s writings demonstrate a unique blending of these cultures. She has received the Letras de Oro Prize for her poetry, presented by Spain’s Ministry of Culture to writers of Hispanic heritage living in the United States. Her writings about, and humanitarian work for, women in Chile have been the focus of feature articles in The New York Times, The Christian Science Monitor, and Ms. Magazine. She has also won the Latino Literature Prize for her poetry and is a Spanish professor at Wellesley College.
