More than 60 authors participated in the third annual Hispanic/Latino Book Fair of New York this past weekend. The Fair, celebrated in Jackson Heights, Queen, was dedicated to Dominican-American writer Junot Díaz, who won this year’s Pulitzer Prize fro his novel The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao. Díaz was present to speak and sign copies of his book on Friday. The fair focuses on Dominican writing and one of the highlights of the weekend was a reading on Saturday by Dedé Mirabal, the one surviving Mirabal sister, who read from her new book about her three sisters, who were assassinated for their opposition to the regime of Rafael Trujillo. The book, Vivas en su jardín (Alive in Their Garden), was introduced by Dominican-American writer Julia Alvarez, whose 1994 novel, In the Time of the Butterflies, focused on the tragic story of the Mirabal sisters.
