Salt Lake City, UT – The writer Julia Alvarez describes herself as a "Dominican, hyphen, American," and she says that her work is about the things that happen in the hyphen - that place between two worlds. Her most recent book is for young readers, and it tackles questions about immigration from the point of view of two children - an 11-year-old Vermont boy and the daughter of an undocumented family. Alvarez joined Doug to talk about the truths that transcend borders. (Rebroadcast)
