Dec. 11

Vamos a Leer Book Group

Time: 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
Location: Tractor Brewing, 1800 4th St NW
Description: Each month educators, teachers, librarians and community members come together at the welcoming Tractor Brewing Co. on 4th St. to discuss adult and 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. In December, we're reading Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel. This will be a potluck meeting to celebrate the end of the term and to enjoy recipes inspired by the novel.
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 reference, see the PDF of Fall 2017 Vamos a Leer titles.
