The Harvard Coop and The David Rockfeller Center for Latin American Studies are pleased to present Isabel Allende, in conversation to discuss her new novel, In The Midst of Winter, with Diana Sorensen and Erin Goodman.


Isabel Allende won worldwide acclaim when her bestselling first novel, The House of the Spirits, was published in 1982. In addition to launching Allende’s career as a renowned author, the book, which grew out of a farewell letter to her dying grandfather, also established her as a feminist force in Latin America’s male-dominated literary world. She has since written twenty more works, including Of Love and Shadows, Eva Luna, Stories of Eva Luna, The Infinite Plan, Daughter of Fortune, The Japanese Lover, and many others.

Diana Sorensen is The James F. Rothenberg Professor of Romance Languages and Literatures (Spanish), Professor of Comparative Literature at Harvard University.

Erin Goodman is The Associate Director of Academic Programs at The David Rockfeller Center for Latin American Studies at Harvard University.
