After lots of research and input from readers we’ve decided on the books for this year’s Vamos a Leer Book Group! Thanks so much to all of you who contributed ideas and conversed with us about so many wonderful options. We’ve tried to balance our selections to include a variety of reading levels, themes, and countries. We’re really excited about this year’s line up and we can’t wait to get started in August. We look forward to hearing your thoughts! Happy reading!
We’ll see you the first Monday of the month (there are a few exceptions for holidays, so check dates below) at Bookworks from 5:00-7:00 pm! Don’t forget–we’ll be raffling a copy of the next month’s featured novel at each monthly book group, so there’s extra incentive to join us!!
