Born in Peru and raised in Chile, Isabel Allende is the author of many bestselling novels including: The House of the Spirits, Eva Luna, The Island Beneath the Sea, Zorro, Portrait in Sepia, and Daughter of Fortune. She has also written a collection of stories; three memoirs, The Sum of Our Days, My Invented Country, and Paula; and a trilogy of young adult novels. Her books have been translated into more than 27 languages and have become bestsellers across four continents. In 2004 she was inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and in 2010, she was awarded the National Prize for Literature, Chile's most prestigious literary award.
Allende will be on tour for the hardcover release of Maya's Notebook, which will be published in English on April 23. The novel is set in present day and tells the story of a 19-year-old American girl who finds refuge on a remote island off the coast of Chile after falling into a life of drugs, crime, and prostitution. This will be Allende's only appearance in North Carolina.
Allende's books will be on sale before and after the event, and a book signing will follow her presentation. Doors open at 6:15 p.m. and the program begins at 7 p.m.
