More About the Author

Julia Alvarez has bridged the Americas many times. Born in New York and raised in the Dominican Republic, she is a poet, fiction writer, and essayist, author of world-renowned books in each of the genres, including How the García Girls Lost their Accents, In the Time of the Butterflies, and Something to Declare. She lives on a farmstead outside Middlebury, Vermont, with her husband Bill Eichner. Visit Julia's Web site here to find out more about her writing.

Julia and Bill own an organic coffee farm called Alta Gracia in her native country of the Dominican Republic. Their specialty coffee is grown high in the mountains on what was once depleted pastureland. Not only do they grow coffee at Alta Gracia, but they also work to bring social, environmental, spiritual, and political change for the families who work on their farm. They use the traditional methods of shad-grown coffee farming in order to protect the environment, they pay their farmers a fair and living wage, and they have a school on their farm where children and adults learn to read and write. For more information about Alta Gracia, visit their website.

Belkis Ramírez, who created the woodcuts for A Cafecito Story, is one of the most celebrated artists in the Dominican Republic.

Como siempre, Julia Alvarez nos entrega una obra llena de vida y observaciones astutas. Lo que mas me encanta es como su escritura traza un circulo sin manifestarse en formas demasiadas obvias o pesadas. Por esto--y mucho mas--creo que ya ha llegado a ser mi preferida autora hispana.

This is a very good reading for a middle schooler who is in search of her identity, as it often happens at this age. Julia Alvarez writing is easy to read and makes it real.

No me engancho para nada. Lei 3 paginas y no pude continuar. Es una novela infantil, sin mayor enganche ni trama. No me gusto.
