Bridalís 1997 work is the "common novel" being read this academic year by all RIT students enrolled in Writing and Literature I, a core requirement for undergraduates.
Bridal, born in Uruguay and now living in Minnesota, based her novel upon the oppressive military dictatorship that held Uruguay in a climate of fear in the 1960s and 1970s. The novel won the Milkweed Prize for fiction and was chosen as one of Independent Readerís five most recommended books for 1997.
The authorís lecture is free and open to the public. For more information, call Sandy Woodruff Whitmore at 475-6928.
