WITH REBECA LUCIANI
“El Cuento del Cafecito” (“A Cafecito Story”), Julia Álvarez. Illustrations by Leo Flores and Rebeca Luciani (LUMEN Publishing House).
This is a story of love, coffee, birds and hope. It is a beautifully written eco-fable by best-selling author Julia Alvarez. When Joe stops at the roadside barra outside his Dominican vacation resort, he finds the local coffee comes in a single, perfect denomination, “a dollhouse-sized cup filled with delicious, dark brew that leaves stains on the cup.” He takes a sip and tastes a coffee that will change his life forever.
Joe is the main character in the adult fable/parable “A Cafecito Story” by award-winning Vermont novelist Julia Alvarez (How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents (1990), In the Time of Butterflies (1993), and In the Name of Salomé (2000).
