The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao | Performance
This Literature to Life presentation features the delicately brutal words of Junot Diaz in this Pulitzer Prize-winning novel about an overweight Dominican boy growing up in Paterson, New Jersey obsessed with science fiction and fantasy novels, falling in love and the curse that has plagued his family for generations. The audience will come to understand the culture of fear and violence that has resulted from Trujillo's 30+ year dictatorship of the Dominican Republic and the importance of facing fear and love. Performance begins at 7pm. For details and ticket information, visit the website link.
