Book of the Month
For all you literary types, we offer a new series. Join us as we explore the work of Latino authors together, both old and new!
Mark your calendars: on the first Wednesday of every month, the Book of the Month will be reviewed, with commentary and questions for discussion, as well as the announcement of the next Book of the Month.
To start things off, we’ve chosen The Witch of Portobello by Brazilian author, Paolo Coelho. Since many of us have probably already enjoyed his most famous book, The Alchemist, we have chosen a different book by Coelho to delve into this month.
This book is the story of a woman named Athena. It is written in a very unique way. Instead of learning about her life through the voice of one narrator, we learn about her through the different people that knew her, or even just briefly met her. The central question in this book, according to the blurb on the back cover, is intriguing: How do we find the courage to always be true to ourselves – even if we are unsure of who we are?
Keep an eye out for the book review on Wednesday, May 2. Suggestions for subsequent Books of the Month are welcome and appreciated. Click here to join our book club group on Facebook. Click here to submit your book suggestion. Happy reading!
