LAII Vamos a Leer Book Group

Time: 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
Location: Casa Rondeña Winery
Description: Each month educators, teachers, librarians and community members from all over Albuquerque come together to discuss young adult books related to Latin America. All of the books featured in the Vamos a Leer book group are chosen for their representations of Latin America, the Caribbean, and Latinos in the United States. Our May book group has been rescheduled until June due to group availability. In addition, because of difficulties finding sufficient copies of Dark Dude by Oscar Hijuelos, we have postponed that discussion and will instead read The Japanese Lover by Isabel Allende.
Sponsors: LAII
Notes: This event is free and open to the public. For more information about the book group and relevant resources, visit the LAII's blog, Vamos a Leer: Teaching Latin America Through Literacy. For a reference, see a list of 2015-2016 Selected Titles.
