Join us November 2nd at Bookworks from 5:00-7:00 pm to discuss our next book. We are reading Enrique’s Journey (Young Adult ages 12 and up) by Sonia Nazario.
Here’s a sneak peek into the book from Goodreads:
Based on the Los Angeles Times newspaper series that won two Pulitzer Prizes, one for feature writing and another for feature photography, this page-turner about the power of family is a popular text in classrooms and a touchstone for communities across the country to engage in meaningful discussions about this essential American subject.
Enrique’s Journey recounts the unforgettable quest of a Honduran boy looking for his mother, eleven years after she is forced to leave her starving family to find work in the United States. Braving unimaginable peril, often clinging to the sides and tops of freight trains, Enrique travels through hostile worlds full of thugs, bandits, and corrupt cops. But he pushes forward, relying on his wit, courage, hope, and the kindness of strangers. As Isabel Allende writes: “This is a twenty-first-century Odyssey. If you are going to read only one nonfiction book this year, it has to be this one.”
Be sure to get entered in our drawing for a free copy of the book!! All you have to do is comment on any blog post by October 26th!
We’ll also be raffling off a copy of December’s featured book, American Chica. Join us that evening to be entered!
We hope to see you on November 2nd!
